Just tried the Lightbox app on Apple TV and getting a maintenance page saying goodbye but hello to Neon.

They had previously sent an email saying there would be a 3 hour maintenance window for the cutover. That was supposed to start at 11pm. The neon site is still under maintenance so maybe things didn’t go so well?

Nice to finally have an Apple TV app.

I found updating apps was a bit clunky.... it works better if you delete and re-add apps.

Ran up my old Lightbox app which asked for an update.  Did that and the new Neon app installed. All my account settings and  list was still there.  Now on 3 week free trial ..





Regards,

You need to get the APK from elsewhere; apkpure or somewhere and sideload it and it will work fine... I haven't tested the move to Neon but the old lightbox app was fine on them.

Its not good enough when you paying for a service especially in 2020 (its not like we want atmos sound, even if they know what that is )...ive complained to neon but I don't think they care...

Yar, 2019 shield tube here, lightbox was already updated to neon by the time I went to use it. Appears in store when I search for it as well.

Also, considering that most TVs only come with 2 speakers and most upscale 1080 good enough for the gen. pop. not to notice, I'd say they have little reason to compete when they can just hold a monopoly with content rights. It is the Sky way.

Surely content these days comes with 5.1 audio? Do they just discard it instead of streaming it as is? Or are they too tight to pay any price difference for it?

How do you get it from the store?  Its showing as only compatible with my Sony TV and my two shields are incompatible... and the lightbox app on the shields has kinda updated internally as before but its messed up due to the missing Movies tab and it still has lightbox branding.
