Nova TV v1.0.5 features

Some great features that I love and some apks usually do not support is Trakt and Real Debrid integration. And I’m glad to say that NOVA supports them both without issues. That doesn’t mean that you cannot use the application without a Debrid account. You will still get a lot of streams even though since I moved to Real Debrid and Premiumize it really changed my streaming standards.

Compatibility With All Android Devices

As far as compatibility goes, it will essentially work on any Android device. I made some tests on an Android smartphone, a tablet and even on a standard Android TV Box and in fact all worked perfectly. Then I moved on testing the app on Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV and the Xiaomi Mi Box S. Both had no issues and the whole experience was great. Lastly I also installed the NOVA TV apk on my Firestick using of course the Downloader app and also I can confirm that works great with the remote and I have noticed no issues with the streaming. Great and wide compatibility with any device!

Yes, Nova TV apk is a safe to use app. But one thing to consider, when using this app as any streaming apk, is your online privacy.

No Downloads

But there is also a negative when comparing NOVA TV with Terrarium TV. For some maybe be a turn-off but fact is that you cannot download a stream, whether that is a movie or a tv show. But since this is a very new apk, that may be fixed in an upcoming version so we will keep an eye on that too.

Google Stadia Coming To Android TV

The Google Stadia video game streaming service is set to come to the Android TV platform.

At the Game Developer Conference earlier this year, Google announced its ambitious cloud gaming service that’s cross-platform and really low-latency. At launch, you’ll be able to stream nearly 40 games at up to [email protected] from Google’s cloud servers to 2018 or 2019 Pixel smartphones, the Google Chrome browser, or the Chromecast Ultra, though Google plans to expand support to more Android smartphones and Android TV.

Android TV Pie

Android TV roadmap in 2020 and 2021

At the International Broadcasting Convention, Google unveiled its roadmap for Android TV in 2020 and 2021. In synthesis is the following:

  • Android 11 R/2020
    • Assistant for Operators GA more partners & i18n.
    • Assistant farfield reference designs, improved x-device targeting.
    • Hero device advancing next-gen smart home UX, e.g. Lens, Camera.
    • Expand home screen and instream ads offering.
    • Stadia integration.
    • Reference video broadcast.
    • 8.0k Apps.
  • Android 12 S/2021 & beyond
    • Assistant for Operators: continuously improve quality, i18n and operator integrations.
    • Hero device program advancing next-generation.
    • Continue to lower TTM/TCO & expand monetization options.
    • Less fragmentation in HW + SW solutions, fewer builds.
    • Hold the line on memory & power, critical user journeys.
    • Continuous performance monitoring of production devices.
    • 8.0-10k Apps.

So Stadia is confirmed for Android TV too and to come to think of the Nvidia Shield TV 2019 that is expected to hit the markets soon, it all makes sense! Stadia for the Android 11 OS launch in 2020. On the current Android 10 platform instead Stadia launches in November 2019. I hope that this doesn’t change Nvidia’s plans and postpones the launch of the new Shield TV for 2020.

Bad news also is that the same TV OS update is set to “expand home screen and instream ads offering”. So more advertisements is the price to pay for convenient gaming streams. Let’s hope in a better way than the previously ad showing on some Sony TVs some months earlier this year.

More Than 10 Thousands Apps in 2021

And if you are wondering about the 8.0k Apps and 10k Apps, that is not a new resolution standard, that is Google’s prediction of the total amount of the apps that should be available on the Android TV Play Store. So that is also a very exciting move too.

Android TV comes without a Web Browser

Android TV can also be used to browse the web. Unfortunately, no browser comes pre-installed on the stock version of the operating system. Which is the best browser for Android TV? Since this is a question that a lot of people keep asking me, I’ve decided to do this video.

Best Web Browser For Android TV


Android TV is designed by Google who else have the Chrome Browser. But you will not find Chrome in an Android TV device. Even though this is a strange take from Google, we are very fortunate to have an amazing browser by a third part.
The web browser in this video is in my opinion the best web browser on Android TV. It gives you access to any website on the internet with great performance. It is also fully controlled with the remote. And can also download files on your device! What more you need from a Web Browser on Android TV to be the best?

Cotomovies Shutdown (ex Bobby TV apk)

Comotovies shutdown operations recently. For those that do not know, Cotomovies also known as Bobby TV or Bobby Movies in the past, is one of the most popular apk on Android. That’s because it was delivering streaming movies and tv shows on Android devices: from a smartphone to a Firestick or an Android TV OS device like the Nvidia Shield TV. But the sad news are not only that the application has shutdown. For those that are familiar with the scene, it is a fact that for any apk like the Cotomovies Shutdown that goes down, 5 or more will come online. It is what it is and this will never change. The saddest news of all is that the developer seems to be cooperating with the right holders and sharing user data with them. That may pose users at risk!

Cotomovies Developer Sharing Data

If you now visit the official website of Cotomovies the following text will appear:

I want to express my sincere regret to the owners of the motion pictures Hellboy and Angel Has Fallen as well as all rights holders for inducing and contributing to copyright infringements by my operation of the app CotoMovies. From this stressful legal experience, I have learned to appreciate the damage apps such as CotoMovies do to those who invest their time, effort and money to create motion pictures. I now plan to fully respect intellectual property laws and strongly urge those who used my app to use legal apps to watch movies. To this end, I have agreed to transfer to counsel for the rights holders user data and communications under my possession and control so that they can enforce their valuable intellectual property.


So what does that mean? For once what is sure is that Cotomovies has gone and if you already have it installed you are better without it so unistall it immediately. The decision of the developer may pose at risk any user that had experienced that application as well as any collaborator, supporter or whoever may have had a contact with him. But if you are one the cautious users out there, and as always follow the right precautions, you have nothing to fear. Using a secure VPN nowadays is more than recommended. It makes you invisible online and you are protected. And even though Twitter is now having a battle in order to defend or just call the developer a snitch, we can easily understand that no one wants to risk their future over an app. Also seems pretty difficult from a logistics point of view to try and threaten users. These apps usually are used by millions of people, that makes it impossible to actually try and go against them.

Our Opinion Regarding Legal Action Against Devs

We can also not stress enough how dumb is the approach of the Movie Studios and their Legal Advisors to attack developers of such applications like an Android apk or a third party KODI Addon. If one of these cases finally go to a court there is a big chance that they will lose against them. And that is because of two main reasons:

  1. These applications or the KODI addons, do not copy, upload or transfer material in any form. They work as search engines, optimized for video and audio files. You cannot call a programmer “pirate”. He never recorded, copied or transferred any video or audio file.
  2. And this brings us to the second point. The apps and addons only point to already available material over the internet. Those are the sources and in most cases related to piracy. There are piracy groups that copy, record or even steal copyrighted material and then share to various sources. If Studios really wanted to take a hit on piracy, needless to say, those should have been always the targets. Instead they chose to open a war with hobbyist groups and normal users. Most probably their advisors know that this wrong, but is has it’s advantages. When you deal with real digital pirates, it is a very hard task for you to find them. They use highly sophisticated methods in order to stay invisible and hide their identities. But most importantly, if they hit the source of piracy, this whole industry of “legal advisors” will eventually stay out of work.

As long as you do not go to the root of the problem, the problem will always be there. You may treat a fever with aspirin but if you have an infection, you risk of dying.

Conclusion

In other words, if they really wanted piracy to stop, other than lowering the prices like some companies like Netflix already does, they should have also go after the sources of those copyrighted materials. Instead they leave the sources as is but we all should pretend to be blind. For the normal users out there, I will go forever advising to use a VPN. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter if you stream content online or not. It is your privacy that should be protected and always sleep safe at night whatever your online activity is: banking, browsing, streaming or gaming.
