IPTV (Atop tv)

    Just throwing this here in case someone has an idea. I'm in Canada and would like to sign up with Atop TV IPTV. They claim their play store app works on Android 5, 6 and 7. The app wasn't accessable in play store (told me I had no devices) so they sent it to me and I sideloaded it. It doesn't show in app drawer (it installs but the 'open' button is grayed out) but I can open from system/apps. It tells me I only have access to free channels (I'm not subscribed yet) , but the free one never connects.
    Any ideas?

    From their Website !
    " We are an “app” on the Apple and Roku store. " It doesn't mention the Play-store so it may have to do certification of the device ?? I would call and inquire ;)

    If you already have a Roku, Andriod or Apple tv box chances are you will not need anything else.

    You need Andriod not Android! :whistle:

    @jackie999 as mentioned by @midnight you would be better seeking help direct from Atop support.

    The app probably doesn't show in the app drawer because it is intended for Android TV (Leanback).

    This is from their announcement on FB and DSLr

    "ATOP will work on Android devices with Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat. (5, 6 & 7)
    Basically if you can find and download the app in the Play Store it should work on your device."

    So possibly they mean the android TV rather than my minix. I really don't want to buy a roku to run it ...

    Thank you for your help here...I know it's an Atop problem but I wondered if any other 'Andriod' Canadians might be here :)

    You don't need to as it does appear to run on regular Android, just the icon does not show up which could possibly be fixed by hacking the app.

    If you wanted to try Android TV on the U9-H you can...

    I did look at that thread but was leery ..I didn't want to mess up my brand new minix since I'm quite pleased with how it works 'out of the box' (I did change to nova launcher thou).
    I saw that reddit post as well - yes IPTV in Canada is a challenge but once you get it going but for me it's worth it.
    Thank again!

    I received a pm from klm "Hi I’m in Canada too, if you want iptv, that’s really good (I’m watching it), try ***, or send me a msg.
    Have fun!

    Is there a way to block these spam pm's?

    I belive you can sort of in your profile settings...it cant determine what is spam though but you can turn off pm's

    you can also click on the users name and ignore them

    Do you mean from @klm ?
    Sounds like he is trying to help!
    He is going about it the right way by sending you a PM rather than advertising it openly here in the Forum.

    Just before this post of yours we removed a post from another member who openly posted something IPTV related which we deemed not suitable for an open post. This user was informed to use PM.

    FYI - after installing the Android TV the ATOP IPTV app is now available and appears to work fine. Without a subscription I only see the free channel.
