HDHomeRun Removed from Amazon App Store...

Postby Thunderthud » Fri Feb 22, 2019 11:22 am

Just saw this article that the HDHomeRun App has been removed from the Amazon App Store!

Don't know if it will allow us to keep our apps already on FireTV, and is so what it means for updates!

This has been posted a couple of time already.

If you already have the app installed, you're fine for now. You just won't be able to do a new install.

The bosses are trying to get ahold of someone at Amazon to discuss/restore the app in the App Store. Existing installs will continue to work. The apk can also be sideloaded, as a temp-fix for new set ups.

The download link for the .apk needs to be updated.

Thanks for the heads-up. I poked some people about it.

Link fixed. It may take a moment or two for the CDN to refresh the cached copy.

It is pretty unfortunate/unfair of them to remove the app since it also prevents users of the CableCard and OTA only tuners from accessing their content. Pretty trashy move by Amazon from my perspective.

What does one need to do to side load the app?

There's a few ways to do it. This is a pretty good method using Elias Saba's Downloader app: http://www.aftvnews.com/how-to-sideload ... ownloader/

That is the method I suggest to all my relatives, safe and easy.

Here's a link shortener for the HDHomeRun APK, to make it easier to type the URL into the Downloader app: https://1n.pm/HDHR
