When might there be an Android Go Movie Central App??
We will be coming out with an Android version of the Go Movie Central app. As an Android fan and user myself, I'm looking forward to it!
It takes a while longer to make an Android app due to having to make the app compatible with all builds of the Android OS. Our resident genius, Mark-VSE, has given us a very detailed explanation of this at Shaw Go Movie Central App - Overview.
Looking forward to this for both my tablet and my phone.
Ok, it's over 2 months later. Does it really takes this long to create an app? Giving the thousands of Android users the short end of the stick is probably not a great idea...
I am looking forward to the app
So we are now at 7 months and counting. Has Shaw abandoned us Android users and decided only Apple users are important customers? An update, any update would be a start.
8 MONTHS LATER AND NO ANDROID APP!!!! Really? What is going on Shaw???? I pay for HBO and I want it on the go with my Android device. This is embarassing.
I want someone here to give us a concrete update to tell us what the hold up is. Don't give us the app compatibility jargon please, Netflix ect. has it sorted and so should you with how much time you have had.
At the moment we don't have any news to share with you for an Android Movie Central app, but it is something that we are working to release as soon as we can. I'll be inquiring with a few departments to see if I can find anything, but more than likely I won't be able to share any details until we have an official announcement. Once we do, we will be sure to let the community know.
I'm an Android user as well (Galaxy S2) so I'd definitely like to see this app made available.
Any update on this? I received 2 emails today (Oct. 8th 2013), one from Movie Central, and one from HBO Canada ... They stated:
"Take Movie Central & HBO Canada Anywhere Take your favourite HBO® series and uncut, commercial-free Hollywood blockbusters on-the-go with your Movie Central subscription. From the gym to your morning commute, get unlimited access on your tablet, laptop or smartphone"
I noticed it didn’t specifically say iPad, iPhone, iPod … So I had my fingers crossed that an Android version was around the corner … is that possible?
Enjoy Movie central on-the-go. Download your TV service provider's mobile app via the iTunes or Android App store to access Movie Central directly on your tablet.
Take Movie Central with you wherever you go. Download your TV service provider's mobile app via the iTunes or Android App store to access your favourite shows and movies on your mobile device.
Looks like it is still up to the provider to provide the App... Not sure if it is up to Shaw to develop the application or just publish it.
Really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No app i sight yet??????? I have previously canceled my Movie Central Subscription because of the lack of an android app. I am usually on the go and watch most of the stuff on my Galaxy S4. So not having an app is actually a deal breaker for me. Please quit your lame excuses and bring out the android version. The fact that the iPhone version has been out for 8 months and there hasn't even been an announcement on when the android app is going to come out is a GIANT MIDDLE FINGER for all the android user. Shame on u Shaw, shame on u!
The android version of the app has been launched today.
