  1. Hayu need to sort out their AppleTV app before working on new apps. It’s the worst of all the streaming apps to use, constantly drops the stream and doesn’t show last episode watched.

  2. Waiting for a version of a streaming service for your TV leaves you at the mercy of so many different companies – just grab an Android or Apple TV box and you’re always at the top of the queue with an updated app….even for obscure streaming providers.

    • Older Panasonic TV’s are unlikely to get updates, Samsung also don’t have a good reputation with updates either, especially on older models.
      The subject of operating system updates has received a lot of forum comments in recent months, especially for some older TV’s.
