Emby for Android TV New Interface

Version 1.4 of the Android TV app (available soon on Google Play and your Fire TV) now changes the library browsing interface to have "tabs" like the web app and Theater.   You now should be able to quickly get to the different views of each library and choose how that library is displayed when you first enter it. This new presentation should now be the same as most of the other apps - helping users that use apps on multiple platforms be instantly familiar with the interface.
