NOW TV now available on some Google TV devices??
Ok so I've just purchased a Google TV device (HD version, £34 from Google store UK) for at my girlfriend's device as got my own at my place and find them pretty good.
I was surprised but please to see that the Sky NOW TV app was available to download directly from the app store (no developer mode/side download etc req)
I downloaded it, signed it, works perfectly, happy days.
Back at my place today and go to download the app to my other device but it doesn't show up when I search for it. My device is the 4k version, totally up to date and connected to standard BT internet with no VPNs set up.
Any idea what's going on here?
Solved! Go to Solution.
So I emailed the customer support And they were absolutely useless, didn't seem to grasp the problem and suggested I wasn't casting from my device correctly 😂
However having done a bit of digging myself the only difference I can see is that my 4k device is running Android 10 whereas the HD version is running Android 12. So I can only presume the app isn't compatible with the older version.
Apparently Google will be updating the older devices to version 12 in the near future so fingers crossed when that happens the Now TV app will be available.
They mean the 4K Chromecast with Google TV device. This device hasn't allowed Now TV installation until now, but its recently released HD version does allow Now TV app installation.
The 4K version has Android 12 via a recent update so, as per the HD version, there seems no technical reason why Now shouldn't allow the app to install on the 4K version.
