    Android TV application version is now available in Google Play.
    Follow this link to install the app. If it's not compatible with your device in Google Play, it means your device is not Android TV.
    You can still try to install it on your device by downloading the latest APK presented below, but you should not expect it to work on just any non-Android TV set-top-box.
    Check this Video demo to get the idea about how the app should work on your Android TV.

    APK v1.2

    Please also check Media formats and codecs, supported by Android platform. If your stream doesn't work in the app directly, it means it is not supported by native Android codecs, so you will have to use external app (check remote control commands below), which does.

    Important 1! You need to install one of the media players available in Google Play to play videos in your playlist.
    Some examples are VLC, MX Player etc. You can also use it as an external player for your streams.


    Important 2! The Android version of the application is still in very early development stage, so it still doesn't have all the feature present in the app on other TV platforms. All these features will be added gradually over time.

    If you would like to test new features as they appear, you can apply for the Beta test by following the instructions given at this link. Turn on your TV (switch to Android TV home screen) and install the app from PC using your Google account by clicking Download it on Google Play link after you apply as a tester on the link provided above.

    Loading your own playlist

    The application does not include any channels, it is only a tool to watch your IPTV or OTT streams.
    You can load your own IPTV playlist by following these instructions in my playlist upload section.
