The What's On component displays your station's television schedule in a condensed, easy to read format. What's On Kids displays Kids programming based on a station's call letter. Viewers can see your station's programming schedule at the current time or view primetime programming. You also have the option to link to your full station programming schedule from the What's On component so users can view your entire lineup for the week.
When users first arrive at your What's On component, the current day and time is displayed by default and a dropdown menu at the top of the component allows users to choose which specific version of your channel they want to view.
Implementing the What's On component will make your website the go-to place for quick broadcast information!
