Needs better remote accessability The remote is 5 star. That's the only reason I have this app. The rest is usless, especially with a digital cable box. I keep getting notifications for "TV start (popular)" even though the only notification enabled is for "TV start (remote)". A remote widget/quick launch would be nice to see, or a stand alone remote app. Or maybe add a feature that is now a part of android 7.1.1 and enable long press to launch a certain app function, ie remote!
Has promise It has potential but it's held back by lack of customisability. I'm not that interested in the TV guide portion. The tv remote app is far more useful to me. I would much rather it be what booted up when you launch the app. The remote itself is functional but there's a lot I don't use. You should be able to build your own remote on one screen with all your needed remote buttons. For example, a row of all the HDMI inputs, power button, YouTube app, PS video app, volume, etc. A decent widget is also a must.
Perfect companion app for using to navigate a Sony Android TV!! Wish I had found this sooner!! Absolutely incredible, no need for a TV remote anymore, this app can be used to change TV channel, check the local TV guide to see what's on, go back to the home screen, change volume, use the discover app, you can even open up your TV apps, such as youtube , Netflix etc!! Can also be used as a trackpad (it has inbuilt mouse) making navigating the TV and apps an absolute breeze!!! Thanks Sony, please keep updating this app!!
At first it was ok. But after I signed in google account and then removed the account. It became slugish and sometime its respond is too slow through wifi direct connection. And also sometime it get connect and disconnect to my KDL 43W800C continuously. Please fix it
Terrible App Doesn't offer anywhere near all the limited number of channels we watch or listen to. There was only (2) offerings for Verizon for our area & neither one gave us the channels we watch. Even the "MC" channels only went up to 1849, not up to the 1899 we have. Also, the channel numbers the app gives you are all screwed up numerically, no way to fix. I'd give it a -5 stars if I could!!
Why have you inter grated this side bar app into your movies app? No mkv playback on new xz its turned a once nice simple movie playing app into a stupid TV guide. After 2 faulty bravia televisions why would I need all this extra rubbish. Just give me my movie playing app back how it was on the z5.
