I've been waiting ages too.
As with HD (not hopeless 720) and 4K, HDR etc, Now TV won't support decent technology (eg Sony Android TV) because they want you to drop it and move to £100/month Sky TV.
They intentionally keep ow TV at the bottom of the tech pile for this reason.
Damn shame and shoddy marketing/product positioning.
Any news on this yet? Can't believe there's no Android TV Sony/Shield app. Though tbf theres so many great shows on Netflix and Amazon recently I'm not really missing it. But in a couple of years when GoT is back...
I can't imagine that the app for Sony TVs has not yet been developed since the issue was originally reported 2.5 years ago. Can Now TV officially advise us why they haven't come up with the app yet? I do not want to keep one of my HDMI socket occupied by Now TV box, as I have dished out more money to buy Bravia android tv.
I have just purchased a Sony android tv thinking and mis-informed that it was just like normal android..ie all the same apps...
Wrong ...no NOW TV which I use often.
Once I knew there was no app I just opened it up on my tablet and went to cast to the tv.....BUT the tablet and TV just stall......as soon as I come out of casting the channel returns!
Please sort at an app out!!
Why it does not let me cast from my phone to TV
every time I try it stops streaming and come with message saying we don't support HDMI streaming to your TV.
Is there a solution around this problem or is it just to force people to buy now TV boxes
@Sam197621 Welcome to the forum. NOW TV don't officially support GoogleCast ('Chromecast built in') on Android TVs although odd people do seem to have got it working in the past. You'd probably get a better response from other Sony TV users if you post on Sony's community where hopefully someone can offer advice
