CE on Android TV devices

  • Updated 9 months ago
Would anyone with a nVidia Shield or Shield Pro be willing to try to sideload the CE app (apk) and see if it will install and login? CE said that it won't work but I'm assuming that this is because it isn't available in the play store on Android TV devices due to it not stretching in landscape mode. I'm thinking of getting a nVidia Shield but want to see if sideload of CE will work.

Android TV can be built both into TVs and into stand-alone digital media players. Users have access to the Google Play Store to download Android apps, including media streaming services Netflix and Hulu, as well as games. The platform emphasizes voice search to quickly find content or to answer queries (such as which movies were nominated for an Academy Award in a specific year). The TV interface is divided vertically into three sections: recommendations on top (which update based on viewing habits), media apps in the middle, and games on the bottom. The interface can be navigated using a game controller, remote control, or the Android TV mobile app. Android TV also supports Google Cast, the technology behind Google's media player Chromecast that allows a mobile device to be used to select and control media playback on a TV.

I ended up purchasing the nVidia Shield TV 2017 16GB version.  I was able to get CE to sideload but the installation could not complete because there did not seem to be a means of elevating CE's to a device administrator status.  I'd be happy to beta test if CE wants to put out a version compatible with Android TV
