Google just illustrated one of the advantages of having an app-centric television service like Fiber TV: you can refine the entire experience through a simple software update. It's trotting out a new version of the Fiber TV app that will help you find something to watch, even if you're not sure where to start. It now offers personalized recommendations for live TV, and will show you live sports events. You shouldn't miss out on that new drama you were meaning to see, and you'll know if that football game has already started.

The software is also much better at helping you catch up on your backlog. The home screen now emphasizes the next episodes of shows you're watching, and will recommend DVR recordings to make sure that you don't miss a beat. Both Android and iOS users should receive the new Fiber TV app in the weeks ahead -- the biggest challenge is getting Fiber in the first place.
