  1. I would like to be able to watch Yahoo! Screen shows (aka Community) through the Yahoo Screen app on my smart TV.

    I bought a TV with the Yahoo! Screen App so I could watch the 6th season of Community. Yet the Yahoo! Screen App on the Vizio doesn't offer the show. This is ridiculous.

    • I would like full access to Yahoo Screen content (Community etc...)

      I've had this TV for less than, but approaching, one year now. Before Community was due to return for the sixth season. The reason I've held onto this product for so long was with all of the Yahoo apps I figured streaming Community's sixth season would be a breeze. But its not even available for the Vizio smart TV format. How can this be true? am I doing something wrong? Show me the way or please render this problem fixed.

              • Need a web browser badly

                The obvious conclusion one draws is that you feel you're securing your place in the market by forcing users to accept the apps you have available, but without a browser you're basically dead in the water. At the very least there should be a way to enter a web address. But there is not. Users are 100% confined to whatever you dictate. Like I said, obviously you're going nowhere with this platform

                • broken link

                  Apparently the "Develop Smart TV Apps" link on https://smarttv.yahoo.com/ is broken. Throws an internal server error.

                    • Add Comcast TV App

                      Comcast TV apps are available on mobile devices so this should not be an issue adding this application. This will save me from renting a set top box.

                      • Funny how you mention in another post that TV apps are a much friendlier way to bring content to our smart TVs.

                        When are you going to add some functional apps? Dont really care that i can watch 20 different news stations. If you cant handle the job get out of the business. I will never buy another product with the yahoo apps. Waste of money.

                        Oh, and by the way Im sure you wont even bother to read this. Im sure you are working on more news apps for us.

                          • I'd like to see an app that allows mirroring of Web based videos through the same wifi connection.

                            An app that allows viewers to mirror shows from websites and is connected to the same wifi. Or an app that specifically connects to the tv in abother way would be fine.

                                I can use my Sirius in my car and online and through the app on my phone, it would be GREAT to use it through my smart TV
                                Home installs for that services are costly and annoying but if the yahoo store would put that app in there it would be awesome.

                                  • Please add the Time Warner Cable TV app.

                                    This fairly new app allows TWC customers to view live TV and on demand content. It more or less mimics their set top box. There is a monthly fee for the boxes, and the app is free. No brainer!
