Dream Player for Android TV Integrates Dreambox

Dreambox is a TV and radio receiver server built by the German company Dream Property. This receiver allows users to stream live HD TV or play already recorded content from their server to Android TV with a new app, Dream Player.

The app uses the Leanback interface, showing each of your channels as well as each of your radio stations. When you open one, it plays the content in full screen with a card at the bottom showing the channel and program information pulled from Dream Player’s EPG.

Using your remote’s DPAD, you can switch channels and have access to more advanced operations such as subtitles.

While there is live TV built in, there is not any support for the Live Channels app right now.

The app is free to download, although it does contain ads which can be removed with an in-app purchase. It is available for devices on Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher, and devices must have an ARM processor (which most if not all Android TVs have).
