It’s got an all-new user interface designed by Google (and built atop Android TV) that’s flush with content from popular services like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and HBO Max. You navigate that content with a normal remote control that comes in the box.
(Action shows, Oscar-winning movies, true crime shows… you get the idea.) Each row combines content from all the big services you’d expect and makes it very obvious where each title is coming from.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll never get suggestions from apps you’re not subscribed to; I don’t have HBO Max, but Google TV still leans on it pretty heavily in the Movies section.
There’s no way to tell Google TV to stop including a particular service altogether, but you can long-press the center button on the remote to like or dislike individual content, or add something to your watchlist.
