    When Google updates many of the GTV apps (such as YouTube, Primetime, etc.) - it's not usually done as part of a full OS update - but rather just a specific app update pushed out by Google themselves. If I'm online when this happens I get a brief pop-up message (on my Logitech Revue) that the app has been updated (it updates automatically).

    OS and firmware updates are not "silent" and are pushed out by the GTV manufacturers (Google provides the base OS and the GTV manufacturers provide the drivers for the OS update).

    Could somebody post the New Primetime apk. I want to try some testing with Canadian content to see if anything works, much appreciated.

    [h=1]Google TV PrimeTime adds Amazon Prime, HBO GO and Netflix subscriptions[/h]By Alan Buckingham




    [​IMG]

    I love Amazon Prime. If I had a Kindle I would probably love it even more, if that were possible. Over the past two weeks I have also come to love my new Google TV, which has taken over our living room, with control of the DirecTV DVR and apps thrown in to boot. One of those apps is Amazon and I use it quite often, keeping a string of movies and TV shows in my watch list ....

    Now the Google PrimeTime app for Google TV has been updated to version 1.4.3-43-79424. This innocuous little name actually comes with a huge feature update. Not only has Amazon Prime content been rolled into the service, but you can control it and Netflix and HBO GO subscriptions from within the app as well ....


    [​IMG][​IMG]
    With this update, Google PrimeTime is now a truly one-stop shop for pretty much all of your content. With Netflix, HBO GO, Amazon Prime, YouTube, cable or satellite box shows and a bunch of other services ....

    Google also added an update to its Play movies and TV app that mimics Amazon's X-Ray. Ben Serridge, the Product Manager for Google Play, says "when you're watching a film on your tablet, simply press pause and cards will pop up with information about actors on screen. You can tap on an actor's face to learn more about him, like his age, place of birth, his character in the movie, and his recent work, or scroll through the info cards to learn more about the movie or soundtrack. When you resume the movie, the cards will disappear" ....

    While that update is currently only for mobile it seems a logical next step is to add it to Google TV as well. Google's foray into the living room started rather slowly as the Logitech Revue offering fell flat on its face, but remember that Android thing got off to a rather slow start as well.

    Does HBOGo work if DirecTV is the provider?

    I believe so, but I'm not for sure, give it a test run ...

    I currently have a Roku and DirecTV doesn't allow HBO Go on it. If it works on Google TV I would buy one but I don't have one to test so I was hoping someone with DirecTV could test.

    Do you have the HBO service via DirecTV, that's all you need to access HBOGo via Google TV...

    I've noticed that I don't have access to the "mini" guide. When I hit the guide button now, it takes me directly to "shows." Before it would bring up the "mini" guide overlay on the screen and I would use it all the time. Any workaround for this?

    Hi

    Bring up the Primetime App. From the side Menu click on Options. Make sure to check mark Quick Guide. Then click on Personalization and click on your e-mail address & hit back. Try bringing up the Quick Guide. If it still doesn't show up, from Home Setting>Applications>Manage Applications>Primetime and click on Uninstall Updates. Give the App time to reinstall update & try bringing up the Quick Guide.
