Thank you! I had no idea holding down on the show would allow the box to pop up so you can hide the show/movie! I knew there had to be a way!
Outdated information. A lot of it is not correct. For example, the part where it says the big X should appear on the main website (with PC) is not there. I suggest going back and rechecking everything and updating this article accordingly.
Thank You for your suggestion. We’ve updated the article according to the website’s current UI.
