Oh ok they must have changed it then as it wasn't available originally... I haven't installed since I sideloaded it...

 

 

 

EDIT: Just checked and the two lightbox apps won't install on my nvidia shields; do you have a link to the google play store one?

JPNZ:

 

Kickass:

 

Any news on if the new Neon will support 4K or 5.1 sound?

 

 

 

Also does anyone knows what bitrate Lightbox tops out at the moment? I believe Nalso seem to indicate that eon is 1080p 8000kbps? 

 

 

 

 

I'd be all over it if they offered 4K

 

 

got an email from Lightbox a couple of days ago apologising for the first two email responses I had received and confirming that the current Lightbox app for Android TV will continue to be maintained once the merge has completed.
This would also seem to indicate that the new Neon will use the lightbox platform (as Neon don't currently have an android TV app).

Yep. They have said that Lightbox is to be rebranded into Neon colours. This also allows them to finally have an Apple TV app. I remember reading that some of the functionality of the app will also be enhanced but I forget the details.

Spark kindly changed me to the $59.99 10GB Rollover Plan, for people who are more interested in data than extras.  This plan is not on their website but you can ask for it.

 

My understanding is it is identical to the $59.99 4GB Rollover Plan so, hotspot included at no extra charge, sharing with up to 4 mobiles allowed, 10GB data monthly instead of 4GB, with rollover data, just doesn't include Spotify (we pay for family so don't need it) or Lightbox (which is no longer).

Disappointed that I won't get to see the final season of Better Call Saul, when it airs.

 

That alone isn't enough for me to shell out for the Neon subscription.

Spark's 10GB unlimited plan is the same price, sure you don't have hot-spotting, but having endless data is a much-better value add.

Wait til all 10 episodes have aired and then binge on a free trial. ;-)
