Return Watched/Unwatched Button to original location On ATV

Why did you move the watched and unwatched and stick trailers in it’s place. I’ll be polite and not tell you where to stick the Trailers, but where you chose is not the proper place.
Any chance of changing it back? Trailers should not be a main option as everyone is not going to use it.

I agree with this. I looks as though done to showcase a new feature, not to improve the UI. The function we’ll use a lot has been reduced to a small button, the one we’ll almost never use is front and center.

Moved and agree.

Yes please, move it back. I’ll never use Trailers, and insult to injury is that the only time I accidentally hit that Trailer button by muscle memory, it wasn’t even available for the content. Also, moving the Watched button two “slots” away from the episodes makes it twice as onerous to mark more than one as watched.

Agreed that the button is not in the right place. Having to push up twice and lose sight of the current episode that you’re marking watched/unwatched is unintuitive. The old placement was also unintuitive except it required only a single up press which was better.

The addition of a long press on the episode itself to bring up a watched/unwatched option would make the most sense here.

Yep it’s a double whammy.

The trailer button can’t be turned off, meanwhile it’s made accessing the features I use daily less accessible.

Is it possible to add an option that optionally disable the trailer button under the ‘Play’ button, sometimes it just causes some trouble. it’s just my own idea, might not suitable for everyone, that I actually don’t wanna see the trailer before watching movie because the trailer can contain spoiler. The feature is fascinating but I just want an option. And moreover, the button is designed so long that may damage the original style.
And again, this is just my own maybe stupid idea.

can’t agree more, it should be in the menu of the three dots on the corner, just my opinion.

Certainly so for TV episodes beyond S01E01, at least. I can see the argument for it being visibly prominent on movie details pages.

It’s maddening having to click up to the far left of the top row to change the watched status of episodes you need to select from several rows down and over.

Why I it wasn’t thought to give users the ability to long press on an TV episode’s thumbnail link to change it’s watched-status (or it’s seasons’ watched-status) boggles my mind.

An option to hide the Trailer button has been added in today’s 7.5.3 update.

This can be found in Settings > General.

With this disabled, Trailers can still be accessed via the context menu (long-press on a poster).

Thanks for this! Nice to have the “Mark as Watched/Unwatched” button back.

With the ability to play trailers using the context menu it’s perfect for me. :+1:
