    I gave that a shot, it side loads and opens up but nothing plays. Same with xfinity TV app (actually this one just crashes). Xfinity says they are working on an android TV version while they themselves are blocking the existing app. I suspect att is doing the same thing as it is not an official release for android TV. Heavyrhino is right, any android app can be side loaded and work (you may need an airmouse or keyboard) but sometimes specific apps can be blocked.

    OK reason why is the android system in the Shield is a stripped down custom operating system some side loaded programs work some do not if it does not show up in the google play store it has not been tested or it will not work.Some files the programs look for are just not there .I love my shield I know some things will not run but it is and will be for a long time the best and fastest KODI box out there
