    Update Continue Watching Thumbnails to show remaining time

    The new VUDU app for Roku Continue Watching thumbnails need the Season/Episode (S# E#) detail restored, but it seems like it would benefit from another change, as well...

    Instead of showing the total runtime for each program in the thumbnail, just show the remaining viewing time, in hours & minutes (rounding the seconds to the nearest minute). This would make for a much more user-friendly presentation, allowing the user to quickly assess which Continue Watching content fits within the currently available leisure time.

    Compare the current(new) vs suggested Continue Watching presentation via the following image (whose "http" protocol specifier has been snuffed to hopefully get this post published sans "approval" bottlenecks):

      (edit: If someone else has the permissions necessary to upload/embed images, please feel free to do so in a reply. Thanks!)

    p.s. The prior UI (still available on many devices) opted to present the time info as "H:MM:SS / H:MM:SS", including both the current exact viewing mark timestamp and total runtime, so one could do the mental math to determine the relative remaining viewing time of each thumbnail ... but it seems like just displaying the remaining runtime for each, at least on the Continue Watching thumbnails would be a far simpler, more elegant approach.

    An animated GIF as an alternative means of comparison...


      Heh, I just noticed that this alternative "remaining time" approach is already employed within a movie's details page in the new interface. See the following snapshot as an example:

      My only suggestion Re: the movie detail's approach is that they should have right-justified the text, to logically link it with the white portion of the progress bar -- as they have in the Continue Watching bar.


        For consistency, the remaining viewing time should also be added for those TV episodes in the TV Shows episode listings that are in-progress (i.e. those displaying progress bars and having [Resume] buttons).

        Note that the above image already includes the S# E# episode detail information that needs to be added to the Continue Watching display and associated dialogs/screens, as suggested for the Continue Watching thumbnails in the preface to this thread's OP.

        p.s. And while fixing this, maybe add an [i], [Info] or [Details] button for each episode in the list, to allow jumping to the episode's details page. (And then, for bonus points, add/allow a [+ List] button within the TV episode's details page to enable adding the TV episode to a My List list.)
