There has been no mention for a very long time about an open AndroidTV app. I know I seen a mention of one a long time ago from a telus employee(cant remember the name) but that post appears to have been deleted. Several people have also tried to sideload the app with out success. I to am very much hoping they will release an app that I can use on nvidia shield. I know others here have said that the PikTV box is good and I used to think that as well, but no longer. We are now waiting on our second replacement(3rd box). For me they seem to start out ok but with in a few months they start dying. App freeze ups, locks ups to where you have to pull the power cord, self reboots, random loss of network connection. Wife actually wants me to cancel now because she is done with it till it is fixed. Sorry, went off on a little rant...but frustrated.
