Any news on Lightbox apps for the Android TV yet? 


 Edit: Just noticed the app hasn't been updated in ~9 months, abandoned already?

I don't have a lightbox sub, but you can easily sideload appa on Android TV. I have Sky Go running great. App isn't responsive to the Sony remote (I have a Sony Android TV)...I use the Sony remote app on my phone for the TV. Has mouse and keyboard input through app.

I can sideload the app, but it's essentially unusable, all it needs is support for a D-Pad input so the CEC remote is accepted and it'd be workable, should be trivial to implement I would've thought, but I am not a programmer.

Would be keen on this too. For now Chrome Casting it from another device seems to work fine.

Another vote for an Android TV App.


Lightbox what are the development priorities at the moment? And where does this sit?
