what about other services like Plex, xmbc, android etc

i think a lot of people haven't bothered signing up to your services because you have your service on a very limited number of devices

Rome wasn't built in one day - we're busy standing up our service on more devices. This is just the first wave. 

That being said, we can't realistically support every single device in existence and need to prioritise based on market sizes, easy of development and commercial partnerships.

I really should have brought a Windows Phone to go with my LG TV.

Does that confirm that Samsung is the only manufacturer you've got a Smart TV app for? Any love coming for Panasonic TV owners?

One small issue and not a biggie but Lightbox logo isnt appearing in the app list once downloaded just the name. Im sure just a small teething problem.

We'll have a press release out later today, but nothing to announce on Panasonic, no.

Tx. Naggy follow up question. :-)

Any word on the update for the iPad app? We generally love your service, but the bugs around pausing shows make it quite painful to use.

In addition to paused shows not being able to be resumed normally, we're also finding that manually repositioning to the correct spot places the Apple TV in a state where we can no longer control playback. And every few minutes the Apple TV screensaver kicks in, forcing us to push a button on the remote to dismiss the screensaver and get the picture back (playback is still happening, but video is replaced by the screensaver).
