Not that you necessarily needed an excuse to spend more time binge watching your favorite television shows on Amazon, but if you were in search of just one more reason to spend your weekend glued to your computer or television screen, here it is — Amazon has just unveiled its new Fire TV user interface, and it ll make your viewing experience all the better if that were even possible .
In the most significant change to the UI since Fire TV s initial debut in April of 2014, the new user experience no longer features different categories in side-scrolling carousels in the primary navigation located on left side of your interface.
Rather, you ll now see everything at the very top of your screen, and you won t have to choose from so many categories, either.
Paradox of choice, you see.
Rather, Amazon told Slashgear, the new larger space allows users to preview new TV shows like Amazon s Originals, movies, apps, and games, and can also be scrolled from side to side to see other headline titles.
Moreover, Amazon has learned from its users preferences, and discovered that Fire TV subscribers were much more inclined to watch a show if they could sample it first — not just look at a still image from the series.
