I returned mine too, but one of the major reasons why was due to it not offering Hulu and Prime, but if I can side load those now I may repurchase.

You’re the same guy I spoke with over at TCF, right?

Probably. I'm mdavej over there too.

Yeah, I just learned about this sideloading secret yesterday. But like you, have no way to verify if it really works. Mainly I'm just trying to keep the thread up to date since I started it.

There are several users in the DirecTV NOW thread here if you want to ask if any of them if sideloading works with that procedure. Even if it's only USB, you have to get the apk over there somehow anyway.

I used to sideload Prime on another Android TV box of mine and it was a nightmare, but it worked in the end.

OK thanks. I’ll have to check out that thread. I actually am starting to miss my AT&T TV box and am having withdrawals, haha! I really liked it and was hoping the new TiVo Stream was going to be like this.
