TV app features

With the app, search the Pluralsight Skills library and watch video courses. You also have access to paths and bookmarks. These features appear in the app once you use them on any device.

Note: Channels and notes are not available on the Android/Fire TV app. Log in to Skills on your browser to manage channels or take notes within a course.

Watching video courses

Use the search bar at the top of the app to search the course library, or find a course from your Recent courses, New courses, Recommended, Bookmarks, or Paths from the left-hand menu. Click a course to view the course details page, and click Watch to begin playing the course. To view the course’s table of contents, scroll down or click Contents on the course details page.

Note: Playback speed can't be adjusted on the Android TV or Fire TV app.

Bookmarking a course

To bookmark a course, click Bookmark on the course details page. Click Remove bookmark to remove the course from your bookmarks. To access your bookmarked courses at any time, open the left-hand menu and click Bookmarks.

Downloading courses (Fire TV only)

With a paid Skills subscription, you can download up to 30 courses, provided your device has enough available space. If your device runs out of space or you no longer wish to have a course downloaded, you can remove it.
