Re: Now TV app on Sony/Android tvs

If that logic were completely sound, they wouldn't have developed Android apps for Samsung / LG TV's. 

 

Nor, would they presently have an app in the Google Play store right now. 

 

 


The apps on Samsung and LG TVs are not android apps LG and Samsung both use significantly different platforms to android , which are proprietary platforms. LG uses webOS Samsung uses TarzanOS the apps on various different platforms may look very similar to one another. But under the hood they will be different to each other.

 

As for the android app on the Google play store that is an app which is specifically designed for mobile phones and tablets specifically with touchscreens in mind android TV apps are different. The user interface on android TV apps is designed for large screen devices and is intended for traditional remote controls to be used Instead of the touch interface

 

Things often aren't as they may first appear. I'm afraid

Re: Now TV app on Sony/Android tvs

... which remains irrelevant, as they undermine the "hardware first" financial model argument. 

 

- but thanks for the fairly patronising attempt at a response though. 

 

The debate is now pretty boring and entirely inconsequential. I think we've determined that NowTV have little to no interest in Android-based apps for TV's.

Re: Now TV app on Sony/Android tvs

Just in reply to your comment above,

 

My Sony Bravia (Android base) does work with NowTv using my phone, I assume it's working with Chrome cast?

 

I can't see the App listed separately anywhere.

The NOWTV app is now live and available to download from the Google Play store. 

 

I found it quite by chance, just as our white NOWTV boxes stopped working and I was looking for a replacement solution.
