Can anyone direct me to the APK? The one I'm trying to sideload onto my Fire TV is in portrait mode and it's a pita to use.


Use TinyDL sideloader with sideload tag HDUBDNW

Easy peasy

It does not work. App is in portrait mode and the selected video just keeps loading. Nothing starts. Is there any other way? Thanks

I have to say that the Android TV app is terrible. The only positive is that the pause button works. Here are some of my problems:

1) Shows are not broken down by seasons anymore. Sometimes you have to do a long side-scroll to get to the episode you were watching. Imagine having to scroll 3/4 of the way through Naruto lol
2) No 'play next episode' option. You can turn on auto-play, but then you have to fast-forward through the credits to get to the end for auto-play to kick in
3) I couldn't find a way to get to a specific episode info
4) No way to tap on the progress bar to get to a certain part of the video. Yes, this was meant for the TV platform and not touchscreens, but man y of us use air-mice with our Android TV boxes

All in all, I'm willing to sacrifice the pause button functionality and just side-load the regular Android app on my Shield, if possible.

P.S. Can you make the Pause button work on the Android app? That's the only thing really missing from it


Update: I managed to side-load the Android app APK and used TV App Repo to make it appear on the home-screen. The only bummer is that it defaults to portrait mode until you start playing video

The Android TV app is broken af.
Trying to log in can cause it to crash.
And this has been a known issue for months.

Everything works on NVidia Shield, but it's missing a lot of functionality. I don't even know why they didn't just make some tweaks to the regular Android app and run with that:
-Enable the Pause button
-Make it Landscape by default

On android, just barely. Was this app made in one day?

This app can definitely be frustrating. Generally works, but not infrequently I get unexpected quit messages, failures to log in, or freezes. Restarting the TV, stopping and restarting app usually fixes, but at least once a month I have to uninstall then reinstall.....

I would love the Apple Tv version of Crunchy Roll on Android TV, is there any plans to do that?
