    Yeah, that's how I got it on there. I said it didn't run correctly, not that it wouldn't install.

    Try lowering the screen dpi to ldpi to enable tablet mode. I lowered my 4 inch galaxy player from 240 dpi to 120 dpi to get tablet apps working.

    I tried that and it gave me the phone app, which I already had. I'll see if I can sideload it.

    Where did you find the apk? Google Play Store says none of my devices are compatible and won't let me download it.

    I've been trying to sideload onto an ORIGINAL Kindle Fire with no success. I believe I found the problem: App is for Android 3.1 and above. According to my Google-ing, the Original Fire has Android 2.3 as its foundation.

    Oh well. Perhaps I'll upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 if that ever materializes.

    I like to dust that one off every once in a while. Always makes me chuckle.

    as long as you do not go below 120 dpi and or have a custom recovery you will be fine.

    After all this wait I can't believe they won't support the Nexus 7.

    Sideloaded works fine on my B&N Nook color which is running rooted with android 4.1.2.

    If even this old device with 800mhz cpu can handle the video playback using non official video drivers than just about any Android tablet should be able to handle it other than dpi issues. Maybe with a little more dev they will gain some confidence and do a more general release.

    OK, grabbed the apk from xda-developers and it seems to load OK on my Nexus 7. Dan Patrick Show streaming in crystal clear HD, will have to wait till I get home to check out the other channels. Seems like a great app but an asinine attitude towards 7-inch tablets.

    Thanks for the link. I sideloaded it and the app appears to work just fine on my Nook Color (CM10/4.1.2).

    Is there a way to enable streaming?

    yes, I finally figured it out, it is not intuitive. On the Home screen scroll the screen left and you will get the Customize Layout and Content Screen. Hit the plus button for a new screen. On add a module, add the Live TV Streaming module. Go back to the home screen and stream. There are quite a few channels to stream.

    update: I just counted 53 channels to stream. This probably varies according to your package. I have the Entertainment package.

    The beauty of Android, just sideload it. Turn on unknown sources, download this link and install. Works great on my Nexus 7.
