How to customize the Android TV 8.0 Oreo screen

The Android TV 8.0 Oreo system offers a number of options to customize the home screen with series, movies and other multimedia content to watch. Unlike the previous version, Nougat, the latest software from Google lets you access the programming of different apps directly from the home screen, without having to open the program.

Another possibility is to create a personal playlist of interesting content from different sources to watch later. See the following tutorial on configuring the Android interface on your TV.
