For ATV4 users, how is app support for NZ centric apps going? Entertainment, particularly SVOD. Can anyone list whats there now, and what is known to be in the pipeline?

I'm my opinion it's not good. TV 3 have their on demand app on the platform but that's about it.

I'd imagine Lightbox and TVNZ have something in the works but that's just speculation.

With regards to video on demand apps the ATV 4 in my opinion is only worth getting if you are doing the geo unblock thing. I've got all the UK and US video apps installed as well as streaming from my NAS. For my personal needs its the one and only box I need.

Lightbox has confirmed they will be bringing out an ATV4 app, Sky has also confirmed it will release a Neon app. TVNZ have said they have no plans at this time. Quickflix said something or other but nobody was listening.

I'm hoping FanPass have an app soon. I've got the TV3 one but it conflicts in the UnoTelly Dynamo settings with the Aussie channels I watch so I don't often use it because I can't be bothered fiddling with the settings, and I can find most things elsewhere.

I think Sky have confirmed they're working on a FanPass and a NEON app so hopefully not long to wait
