This app used to be awesome. I loved that I could watch a rebroadcast of my local morning news and many other shows. Unfortunately, a recent update make it not run correctly on my Nvidia Shield Android TV streaming box. The app doesn't show that it is installed any more. I can find it through Settings->Apps, but when I start the app, it shows me the phone interface rather than the TV interface. I hope a new update will fix it soon because I relied on this app.

The app is terrible. It crashes repeatedly on startup sometimes like 5 times in a row before finally starting. Sometimes it is necessary to force stop it and open it a couple of times before it finally starts working. And like 2 weeks after installing it my local station was dropped from the channel lineup so now it's basically useless except for the weather blurb it opens into which you can get anywhere. All the free channels it is larded down with are available everywhere. Don't bother with it

Works on my tablet like it does on my TV & streaming devices EXCEPT I had to power off the tablet's display to shut it down because the on-screen buttons (Home, Back, etc.) aren't displayed. Then I discovered that those buttons would appear when I swiped DOWN from the top or UP from the bottom of the screen. This function wasn't initially obvious to me.
