    Very true. Anyone purchasing a no-name brand should such as the Nextbook mentioned above, should have low expectations.

    However this crap-app (see the reviews) isn't "allowed" to run on my Nexus 7 2013 4G tablet, which has plenty of grunt and an awesome screen resolution. Mainly because of the silly mindset (commercial-exclusivity agreement) TV3 seems to have around Samsung - which basically says, if you don't have a Samsung device, TV3 doesn't want you as a customer.

    Just heard back from TV3 who are passing the feedback to their product team. So from that I would say that TV3 doesn't want to exclude Samsung device users. As far as they are concerned the bigger the viewing audience the better!

    It seems I may have jumped the gun a bit on the previous post... I've been told that the Google Play store has a list of supported devices for the app and if your device is not on it then you are possibly out of luck.
