What Is Up Next On Apple TV?

The Up Next section on the Apple TV app shows content that you’ve already started watching or plan to watch next, essentially keeping all of the TV shows, movies, and live events from any app you’re signed into in one convenient place. It makes playback a breeze.

Shows and movies are put in the Up Next section in accordance with what Apple TV thinks you will most likely view them. Regardless of what streaming services you have, your shows show up for you.

For instance, if you finish watching an episode of one of your favorite TV shows, the next episode of that show will be placed in the Up Next section. 

This works the same with TV shows that you are up to date on or have just finished watching. When a new episode of one of these shows is released for streaming, it will appear in the Up Next section so that you can watch it as soon as possible.

Up Next also works with live events like sports. If you are signed in on a sports app like ESPN, and your favorite team is playing, the game will show up on the Up Next section too. This ensures that you’ll never have to worry about missing your home team beat up on their much hated rival.

Another great thing about the Up Next section is that it will keep track of everything you watch, no matter if you are watching on Apple TV or a different device like an iPhone or iPad.  As long as you are signed in to your Apple ID account on all of your Apple devices, everything will be synced up and the Up Next section will adjust no matter where you want to watch.

Getting to the Up Next section in Apple TV is really simple but I’ll still walk through the steps here.

First, you need to open the Apple TV app from the main menu and make sure you are on the tab that says “Watch Now”. This is basically the home page for the Apple TV app.

From there you’ll be able to see a row labeled Up Next on the screen. Simply navigate to the row using your Siri Remote and you’ll be able to move left or right to scroll through all of the shows that you’ve been watching or have been dying to start.

All you need to do is navigate to the TV show, movie, or sporting event that you want to watch in the Up Next section. Then, simply click on what you want to watch and it will start playing.

You can also use Siri to play a TV show from your Up Next list, but this will require you to use voice control. 

How Do You Add TV Shows, Movies, And Sporting Events To The Up Next Section?
