Re: Will there be a native for Sony Android TV?

Chromecast is a bit of a pain to teach a four year old to use

Re: Will there be a native for Sony Android TV?

I want to add my +1 to this, the Chromecast app isnt really any good as it requires you to have the mobile you have paired with your TV next to you at all times... which isn't really practical if you want to go out and leave someone else with the TV.

 

I am sick of having tons of remotes, and really given that Android TV is being added to multiple manufacturers devices it is really time for a native app on the platform.

 

PLEASE PLEASE NOW TV, can we have a native app, I'll buy you sweets if you provide one, i promise Smiley Very Happy

@PepUK I have used an old phone previously to control Chromecast. One with no sim.

Re: Will there be a native for Sony Android TV?

You support a now tv app for other smart TV's so why not for Sony?
LG android TV's have your app and Sony is a much more established brand.
Sony have said they are waiting for now tv to provide the app so what are you guys waiting for?

Hi @andybathe,

 

Just-so-you-know... LG televisions don't run the on the Android operating system. And neither do Samsung televisions.

 

 

Cheers

Hi Andy B

 

As far as I can see, modern LG Smart TVs run on WebOS 3.5, not Android, plus SMD is usually on top of these kinds of detail and is hardly ever wrong about them.
