    Just bought Sony 9005 with android TV.

    I was wondering if it is possible to have several active apps running, and switch between them ?
    I have noticed that if i press and hold the home button, it seem like i can go through apps, but is is not consistent which apps there are active.

    Lets say i watch netflix, and want to watch normal digital tv, but without terminating netflix. How do i do that ?
    And then i would start maybe youtub and HBO. It is then possible to have all those apps running in the background and switch between then easyli ?

    I hoped that i could long press the home button, and then both netflix, HBO, and youtube would display and i could choose which app i wanted to be active, and then choose maybe netflix, and the tv would go to that app where i left it. then long press the home button again, and choose to go to HBO, and so on.

    On my android phone i can have multiple apps running in the background at switch between them - is this possible on android TV ?
