Android TV supporter

HDHomeRun and Android TV go hand-in-hand for support on their boxes. As long as your Android TV device is updated to Android 4.4.2 or Android 6.0 Marshmellow, you will be able to support any content. This will work for the following devices: Air TV Player, Xiaom Mibox, Nvidia Shield, and Android's stand-alone TVs. You can enjoy your live TV as long as these Android devices are up to date.

Android TV also allows you to view DRM protected content, which is copyrighted content that you have to purchase the rights to. This content is only permitted for providers who have bought permissions to view these shows. Viewers have to buy this content, like a movie or show, from Google Play or iTunes because they are essentially buying the rights to view the DRM content. To see this programing on your HDHomeRun, you have to buy the permissions for these programs through your local cable provider. Then, you'll be able to enjoy that content without any problems.
