Amazon disables Sony TV Amazon Instant Video app on other devices
Earlier this week we reported on efforts to take the version of the Amazon Instant Video app for Sony TV devices and port it over to other Android TV devices like the Nexus Player. New reports indicate that Amazon has rendered the app inoperable on non-Sony TV devices.
Users were interested in the Sony version of the Instant Video app because it was a better user experience than the version Amazon was officially deploying through the Google Play Store. Installation did require sideloading the APK.
Members of the XDA community are currently looking through the code in hopes of figuring out how Amazon may be determining the installs are not on Sony TV devices.
