To integrate with the home screen, you will need to add a new dependency, support-tv-provider. The leanback support library is also required for your app's UI and playback.
If you use Android Studio as recommended, the following dependencies will automatically be installed by Gradle.
implementation 'com.android.support:leanback-v17:26.x.x' implementation 'com.android.support:support-tv-provider:26.x.x'

This sample app runs this once at install time to publish an initial set of channels and programs, however in a real-world setting this might be run at other times to synchronize a server's database with the TV provider database. This code will ensure that the channels from "SampleClipApi.getDesiredPublishedChannelSet()" appear in the TV provider database, and that these and all other programs are synchronized with TV provider database.
