Latest version in the GZ Thread. Works fine on my Xperia Z2 Tablet. My tablet is rooted but i use a couple of xposed modules to fool TVNZ & TV3 app into thinking it's not rooted.

Version 1.1

I created a new folder in my Xperia Z tablet running 4.4.4, downloaded the app into the folder, installed it and it runs well ... However, the tablet is set up with multiple users. As administrator, I was able to see the APK file to install. Yet, when I log in as my partner, the new folder does not show up with File Commander under her profile (yet it does under my profile) and the app that I installed under my profile is not in her app list. Is there anyway I can get the app working under her profile??? I suspect it is because her profile is limited as not administrator? Thanks in advance

I'm using 4.4.2 but the steps should be the same.
Once admin has installed TVNZ app, go to Settings >> Users & select the User you wish to edit(spanner & screw driver) icon. After a few seconds the list of apps this user can access will pop-up. Scroll down to TVNZ & activate & Reboot.

Thanks, but it looks 4.4.4 is different. The only option I get for other users in the users setting is 'delete' user. Clicking on users does nothing.

Steps are the same. I just updated over night to 4.4.4 & nothing has changed. You should still be logged in as Admin when trying to edit Restricted User profile.

Hopefully the link works:

Hey, thanks mrbbi for the YouTube post - much appreciated.

My problem was that I was trying to add 'On Demand' to a user using their own profile and apps, whereas I needed to set up a restricted user to be able to select apps from my profile. I've set up a new user 'Guest' which can be used by anyone to access a selection of apps, including 'On Demand'. Ideally, I wanted to add 'On Demand' to a user profile when using their own apps, but  I now understand why I am restricted as I shouldn't have ability to control another users independent profile.

Thanks once again - new guest profile will give my partner access to 'On Demand', and visitors can also use the Guest profile as well.  Cheers
