FYI & Kudos to out to DTV for the so-called Progressive Web App!

I want to take the time to thank DTV for this development. Prior to installation I used numerous android web platforms. They were honestly a pain in the rear. Not all but some mind you. :slight_smile:

Upon learning about the Progressive Web App and it’s abilities here. I furthered studied and learned that this could be for me. Following the instructions, I now have an app button for DTV on my andrid screen that links direct and the environment plus the view ability is so much better.

You Folks Rock! Keep it Up!

Should you be wanting to know how?

For Android

Install a PWA

  1. On your Android device, open Chrome Chrome.
  2. Go to a website you want to install.
  3. Tap Add to home screen .
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to install.

If only I could learn how to embed a PDF file.
Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance.


I am Not a Techie At All…

I Already Had The DTV
Button on My Android Screen…

After The Change…

It Still Works
And Takes Me Here…

Is This What Yer Talking About?

Not sure where ya got yer stuff from.

I dropped all my links to DTV on opera and other i-net platforms. Followed what I posted via Chrome and viola I got a DTV logo linking directly to DTV with a look that is way different than what I got from Opera, for example. It’s appearance and ease of use also is much better too.

No Idea…

A Couple Years Ago

It Was a Drop Down Option Thingy??

Click Here…Add To Home Screen…

Being Tech Illiterate…

Have No Clue Any Of What Yer Saying…

And I’ve Never Viewed DTV on Another Device…So…

Funny that, mines the same. I use the same icon from the old DTV as well

I created this thread as a way to thanking DTV and informing others of this opportunity.

Not to quibble. :slight_smile:

I had always used a browser Opera or Opera mini to get to from my Phone.

When I read about the PWA, I followed up and learned more about it.

I went to chrome and followed the instructions (posted above) and now have a better viewing environment without the browser in the background.

That is the reason for this thread !

However, since it is brought up. What is the difference between DTV through a browser application as opposed to the Progressive Web App?


Progressive Web Apps (PWA) are built and enhanced with modern APIs to deliver enhanced capabilities, reliability, and installability while reaching anyone, anywhere, on any device with a single codebase.

The Three App Pilllars

  • Capable
  • Reliable
  • Installable
  • The Best of Both Worlds


Out of curiosity
Would you both consider installing?
If so, what happens when you install this?
Is it different?
In what way/s?

Thanks Dear…

As I Said…Im Clueless

Still Not Sure…

It That Diff From What I’m Using?

I’m not sure
If the same
I would think different unless this tech was available back when you first installed.
hmmm Not sure

Well Anyway…:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Sorry, I wouldnt know any different, I’ve always had android.
