How does Live tile work?

There are multiple view categories you can choose from – Upcoming, Aired, Unwatched Shows, Unwatched Movies, Trending Shows and Trending Movies. Live tile shows information for one of the categories in the list. If it cannot find or get data for the first category (in case you are not logged in to trakt, you have no my movies or my shows) it will try to get data for second category and so on. This ensures that there is always something shown on live tile. So choose what category you want to see in the Live tile and put it on top.
