Ok thanks. You have to pay for a Beta product? Really?

The Android TV app is not beta. It's only the server that is in beta. I understand that you may think of it all as one, but they are two separate components.

Hi

I have also just installed emby server on my shield after cancelling my plex pass. I am confused about the trial period on the player app. It says its in trial but I can't trial the live TV. I left plex due to its poor live tv performance & will not be paying for any further subscriptions without trialing first. When the new player is in a 2 week trial, am I supposed to be able to trial live TV or not? & if not, is there any way to trial it without paying a monthly subscription?

 

Thanks

Hi.  Sorry, no there is no trial for Live TV at this time.

 

Thanks.

Disappointing. I'm looking for a worthy package to subscribe to but obviously wish to check it fills my requirements & works well with my hardware before forking out my money. Even just a 3 day trial would be sufficient. Hope the Devs change their mind regarding trials in the near future.

Might be something they add in the future but for now you could try the lowest tiered subscription and if it doesn't fulfill your requirements then be sure to cancel it before it renews

you don’t consider spending $5 to get you a months trial to be reasonable?

Obviously not. If a product is good & does what it claims, people will want to continue using it & be willing to pay. I'm not going to pay first only to discover it's not what I'm after. Even though I have spent more than $5 in time just by replying to you. Not offering a trial to me indicates a lack of confidence in the product. The business model seems to be sales based on fanbois kicking it along through forums rather than on it's own merits. Greatly assisted by plex seemingly attempting to destroy their own product. If EMBY is good, a trial will boost genuine sales rather than people feeling disappointed & ripped off if it's not for them.

Hi.  The lack of a trial for this feature is simply a technical hurdle we haven't had time to address to this point.  If you try Premiere and it allow us to help you with any initial issues and still decide it isn't for you within the first week, we will refund it for you.

 

Thanks.

a slightly more vitriolic answer than I expected to what was a genuine question. First and last time I’ll be called an emby fanboi too I reckon.

I predominately use emby for live tv and it’s definitely worth a usd5 trial

Thanks ebr. Sounds fair to me. I want my server to be on my shield only. Is it too soon to be asking how far away a stable shield/android tv server is?

As soon as the 4.0 release is announced stable, the android version will be part of that. Thanks.
