  1. Amazon Prime Video working on Mi Box 3 running Oreo OTA Update

    I just got the Oreo update on my Mi Box 3 today, so I decided to try get Amazon Prime Video working again. It was a success. Prime videos pay in 1080p with sound. I don’t have the Mi Box connected to my 4K TV, so I am not able to test it for 4K. Using Amazon Prime Video for Android TV version 4.7.9.

    The Amazon Prime Video for Android TV in the Google Play store still does not list as compatible. But the sideloaded app installed without any issues.
    Search Google for “4.7.9-googleplay-armv7a” and the APK is easily found.

    If the link makes the post. I located the APK here: https://www.reddit.com/r/AndroidTV/c…layarmv7a_apk/
