    Not sure what the Hava HD is, but the Slingplayer doesn't have to provide a secure stream... Nobody said it was impossible to stream media on an Android, that has been available since day one - it is about streaming DRM secure video.

    Netflix was the first to put out a secure streaming app in May of 2011 using a proprietary toolset, but many of the smaller streamers struggled for a long time having to wait until Kit Kat was released in September 2013.

    You'll need Android 4.1 or later.

    With this little tidbit and based on the reading I have done, I think it is very possible they decided moved to MPEG-DASH - as some have suggested.

    Thanks Margret the Android users are looking forward to this release! :)

    4.1? :up: That's great then since my cell phone and tablet are using version 4.4.x. I'm looking forward to trying it out next month!

    Thanks for the info!!

    Yay, finally! I don't really have an Android tablet, other then a Kindle Fire I use exclusively for Clash of Clans, but I still think it's good news that it's finally coming down the pipe. Might even sway my decision for my next tablet.

    Can we rename this thread now?

    It's misleading and could cause confusion.

    I'm blown away by 4.1 being the cut off. I hoped that my now ancient Xoom (March 2011) would work with the stream when it was initially announced, but held little hope as time passed. Right now it is mostly only good for movies and very light surfing, but now it gets a second life!.

    Will there be support for the Kindle Fire, HD, HDX? Perhaps not for the first two. I think the Kindle Fire HD runs a form of 4.0.3.

    The 3rd gen HD and all HDX versions are compatible with 4.2.2 so they should work. But you'll likely need to side load the app. Older HDs and the original fire are based on 4.0.3 so they will not.

    Thanks, Dan. That is what I thought. It is a little disappointing since my daughters have Kindle Fire HD's (2nd gen), but at least it will work with our phones.

    I really hope this is for real.

    And I really hope it actually works. After all of this time it better be one of the smoothest experiences I've ever had.
