With this update the app now appears in the Leanback Launcher as seen above. In the gallery displayed below you’ll see the CBC has gone for some interesting UI choices. While not the best styled app, which could be¬†addressed in another update the CBC gets an A for effort and being available on the TV platform and it’s good to see companies finally turning the corner on the big screen platform.

    This is one of the best apps on my new Sony Android TV. (XBR43X800D) – I would love to find a way to get it installed on the Amazon Fire TV (4K) as well. Is there an APK I can get for this specific version of CBC News ?
