We want to empower you, and your mobile audience, to see a predefined schedule of videos, and live events, right in the iOS mobile, Android mobile, web browser, and Roku!
This is a great way to keep your audience engaged. It will encourage your audience to return to see your latest and greatest scheduled content. It will also help your audience understand what to watch, and when, especially if you have a very large catalog or members who do not know where to start.
This a great tool for fitness, learning, and entertainment scheduling! Our Calendar feature is only available on our Plus Plan.
Calendar is in beta! This means the calendar is an early-release feature. You may optionally enable it. Right now, there are limited capabilities. Some capabilities will change. Uscreen plans to improve it further. But we also want to give you early access, as soon as possible, since we know you, and your audience, will benefit from this tool now. Beta also means we want your feedback! So please share your calendar-related feedback in a feature request or with your friendly Customer Manager.
Calendar is an optional feature! The choice is yours!
