They've confirmed Android TV but not whether it will be generic or Sony only, like Lightbox. I think they have also confirmed Apple TV but I'm not sure.

The unspoken part of my question was about release dates. So Assuming android tv/apple tv by RWC.   Your shield, does that count as generic Android TV, ie you get a lightbox app?  I know I'll have friends after a device, and they'll be asking me.....and while for 90% I'll say apple tv, it's handy to have cheaper options.

Definitely still holding hope for a native LG Webos app at some point. Chromecast is good but alot of the native apps seem to have slightly better upscaling.

Took me a while for the penny to drop LOL.  At first I thought, that's f'ing useless, the attachment to the tweet isn't resolving.  Then I realised that is exactly the point.  Very funny.

I am really hoping the Samsung TV I bought a few weeks ago will get the app in time for RWC.

 

Cannot bear the thought of teaching Himself how to cast.

Can someone in the know tell me why fast forward and rewind doesn't/can't work the same way that Sky works?

Latency for the seek. My 1gb wired network recorder using tvheadend via kodi can only seek at x8 speed before it can't fill the buffer fast enough and Internet latencies are higher... This is one of my major bugbear rs with online sport delivery

You''ll have to explain yourself some more.

 

As in, I didn't think you could ff/rwd a live satellite broadcast.  🤣

 

So I assume you mean a recorded file on mysky vs an ondemand asset. 

 

 

 

And do you mean fast forward as in watching the video file at 30x speed or some such, as opposed to jumping to a point in time on a time bar?
