Any news on a native app for Sony Android TV?

Are there any plans to have an app on Android TV? Chromecast works well but an app on the home screen would be better.

I asked this back in 2015, just wondering if plans have changed since then and we'll get an app...

Thanks.

I would like the same thing for my Phillips Android TV. 

With more Android TVs coming out, it would seem prudent to provide one. Surely it can't be much more work to adapt it from Android for tablets.

Whilst Android TVs aren't huge in raw numbers, that number of TV sets with Android TV as it's OS is still a very sizeable chunk of the British TV market. I implore you to heed the word of your customers, and follow the example of Netflix, and create a native app for Android TV.

 

Netflix only got so big because it was so ubiquitous.

Please do this, it is a glaring gap!

Its also pathetic that Now TV isn't on Amazon Fire Sticks/TVs. 

Not purchasing another stick just to have my Now TV content when I travel.

But you would carry a Sony Android TV with you when you travel?

Depends on if I can fit it in my suitcase.

Re: Any news on a native app for Sony Android TV?

I'm using a Sony Android TV and looking for a native app, seems silly not to have one. I don't want any additional devices, sticks, boxes extra remotes or having to cast etc. I'm currently on a trial of NowTV that came with my broadband and casting at the moment, but if the time comes to pay for this service I will be out unless there is a native solution. Wishful thinking considering how long this has been asked for, but adding my feedback so hopefully it helps prompt some action or at least some news on if one is in the pipeline?
