New ads have suddenly appeared on my TV Home menu

    Google recently released two new features called Highlights on your home screen and Subscriptions in a snap. These features were included in the latest Android TV Launcher app (Home app) update.

    With Highlights on your home screen, you'll see suggested movies, shows, and quick trailers to help you discover something new to watch.

    Subscriptions in a snap makes it easier for you to watch a must-see show from an app that you haven't subscribed to. Find your app in the Google Play store and then click Subscribe and install. It's that easy!
