Should have said it's sideloaded on my Shield, but 1.0.2 seems to work. Or did at about 5.30pm. You can get it from apkpure.

Because right now no one can watch anything. Check their Twitter and Facebook feeds as they've got some issues.

Was back up and running for me around 10pm. The new UI is interesting - just wish I could hide the movie options for some profiles.

 

Video quality was good with an average between 5.8 and 7.9 Mbit for "The High Road"

Have the reduced the number of devices you can now use to 2? Sure it used to be 4 or 5.

Just loading it up now.
That’s not the number of devices, it’s how many you can stream on at same time.
I.e one person can watch on one TV, and at same time someone else can watch something different on another device/TV.

Can still have it set up on more then two devices to have available to use with it.

Finding it slow to log in and play at moment, the yellow circle goes round for a good 30 seconds plus. Hope they get that sorted.

Right, but this still means that where you used to be able to have up to 5 devices streaming at once, you can now only have 2.

I feel like you could never have more than 2 devices playing back at a time...

Correct. You can have your account registered on up to 5 devices, but concurrent streaming is limited to two devices.

So it's always been limited to 2 concurrent streams?

Yes it’s always been two. Now it’s four if you pay for the Premium plan.

I just assumed the the reason for the 5 device limit was because they didn't restrict multiple streams.

I feel like I'm missing something obvious but I can't figure out why my Samsung is not working. I get the message "well be back soon", including "reset or app or your TV to keep watching". I have a UA46F5500 which appears to be a 2013 model (bought June 2013) so should work. LB app has updated to v3.003 yesterday ok. When it says "reset your TV" what does that mean? Any other hints? Thanks.
