Frndly TV's new home screen

Frndly TV has been a favorite of mine since the service launched in 2019. It is cheap, starting at $7/month, and lives up to its name in being a source of family friendly TV.

The interface has always been simple, defaulting to a cable-style TV guide. It also had a section for on-demand movies and on-demand TV shows, plus a place where your recordings were stored.

Now, Frndly TV has added a new home screen that makes it more like other services.

As you can see, it has the top carousel of suggested content, with live TV suggestions below. Scrolling down gets you a "Continue Watching" section, a "Recommended For You" section, a "Tending Now" row, a "Coming Soon" row, "Critically Acclaimed," followed by other rows of content.

It's new, and I really haven't decided if I like it or not. Maybe I will come to really like it. Or maybe I'll jump straight to the Guide each time. I can see why some would like it, and maybe that will include me. One day.

My Streaming Life has enjoyed Frndly TV for years. It will enjoy it for years to come. And I may enjoy this latest change to the system. Time will tell.
