  • I love the way all these providers make their apps available for Android TV. And yet I have to see anyone outside of techies actually use the platform. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unfortunately, it's plagued with commericals which makes it no better than network television. I'd much rather wait for the shows on Amazon Prime or Netflix than be subjected to annoying ads.
  • Why do this over Hulu for $3 more?? Live TV isn't that big of a deal. It's CBS. All you need is an Antenna. Larger On Demand selection?? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Not everybody has the ability to use an antenna. Some areas get absolutely no radio reception, and some types of homes, such as mobile homes, can't handle them well.
  • You are right, some can't get the signal. But a vast majority can, if we are talking the USA. An external Antenna on a elevated pole does wonders, even with mobile homes. Still, what's the benefit? $5.99 for the ability to watch live and not wait an hour? It just doesn't make sense when Hulu is only $3 more with way more channels to choose from.

  • I didn't think Hulu had CBS content? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I suppose it's only a matter of time until these services/networks all yank their content from Hulu/Amazon/Netflix and make you buy from them. Funny how I wanted this, and now I'm kind of hoping that they all fail miserably. Not that I want to go back to cable, but I'd much rather just pay for my Netflix and Amazon Prime and be able to watch things than have to pay $6 each for 10-20 different channels that I care about.
  • At $5.99/month, it will fail. They aren't giving you enough for your money compared to other services. It's probably just an extra thing they'll offer hoping a sucker will pay it, not a replacement. =D Posted via the Android Central App
  • Don't worry, cheap on demand is here to stay, Netflix pays networks way too much to drop content and Hulu is Network owned Posted via the Android Central App on the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
  • Doesn't this need a cable or satellite subscription anyway? That's how it was when it was released, I think. I'd rather have HBO Now on Android TV, where's that? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I won't be home for a while to check on the device itself, but according to the play store the app is not compatible with the Shield TV. Anyone happen to know if it shows up in the store for download?
  • works for me on Shield, Although its definitely not worth the price.
