Re: Is NowTV available as a download for Nvidia Shield Set Top Box ?

You can only sideload one app if I am correct, and that is currently Plex (on my Now TV box). That is an old version (updated but still an old version). As far as I am aware you cannot get Amazon Prime Instant Videos from the Now TV/Roku store? I see that Amazon Prime Instant Video doesn't have an app for Android TV either... meh!!!

@4268Yeah, but the Now TV Box is a Roku box, but you cannot sideload more than on app (and I already have Plex installed) and the Amazon app is not available from the skinned Now TV interface. I know what you are saying - a stock Roku box will play it all, but I already have an Amazon Fire TV box & a Now TV box.

@marky9074 Plex is available on Amazon box. Then you could free up the slot on your Now box.

Re: Is NowTV available as a download for Nvidia Shield Set Top Box ?

Thats true. I did brush the dust off my old Roku stick, and did wonder if that was the solution, but then I realised that there is no Kodi... At the moment I am using the Plex add-in inside Kodi (so only one app and not two). Has anyone seen the Roku Amazon Prime Instant Video file for Roku anyway (outside of the channel store). I would be intrigued if I could side load that onto the Now TV box...

Personally speaking....

 

Unless Android make it far more difficult to remove HDCP protection on (HDMI output connected) devices running their operating system, I can't see time when the NOW TV app will be supported....
