Android Apps that don't work on TV

Modified on: Fri, 24 Jun, 2016 at 2:17 PM


We've noticed that some apps from Google Play Store (Android) do not work over HDMI cable and so do not work on Android devices that display contents on an external screen such as a HDTV.

These apps, while working fine with our service, will return a random error when trying to watch them on an Android box that is connected to your HDTV.

Unfortunately for situations like this, the only way you'll be able to watch videos on the affected app is to watch them either on your tablet or mobile phone.

Just to reiterate, this issue does not stem from My Private Network VPN service, but is a restriction applied by the application developer themselves.
