Viewers can also reorder how the channels appear on their screen, and save videos to watch later if they are pressed for time.
The updates to Yahoo Screen certainly aren't revolutionary. But they tie in with Yahoo's beating of the personalization drum, at least in the way the company has presented the news: "Sit back, relax, and enjoy a new type of viewing experience personalized by you," Robby Stein, a Yahoo director of product, wrote in a blog post.
Yahoo has snapped up multiple online video startups recently. Earlier this month, the company acquired Evntlive, a concert streaming service that, among other things, gives users more viewing options by letting them choose different camera angles. Yahoo also acquired Ptch, a mobile video company originally incubated out of DreamWorks.
Yahoo also said on Monday that it has added new content from BuzzFeed, CollegeHumor, and The New York Times.
