PuppetMaster.TV Adds Live Channels Support

PuppetMaster.TV, the app trying to take on Kodi, has just received a recent update that further separates it and takes more advantage of Android TV’s unique feature set. Now, live streams from puppets (this app’s name for plugins) will show up in the Live Channels app as a source, allowing users to add them and watch this stream in either app.

This experience works fairly well, with support for time shifting in addition to just streaming content live. This is because the developers have integrated my Live Channels library ChannelSurfer which takes away all the hard work. There is not support for on-demand video in Live Channels, which is a bit more niche, but just being able to stream live content is cool.

Users may need to delete and install puppets again in order for the channels to appear correctly due to the current update mechanism. You may initially see that no channels are available. If so, you just need to do that in the Puppetmaster.tv app and the channels will appear exactly as expected.

PuppetMaster is free to download on Google Play.
