What to Watch

Clicking on the movie details or series details buttons will allow you to view the episodes cast & crew, upcoming show times and can provide a list of suggested content based on the show you are currently viewing.

Click the Record & Watch button to display the Watch Now Overlay with an option to record and watch from your iPad/iPhone or on your TV.
