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.
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...
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....
