On 1st Feb 2018, v4 of TrilbyTV will be released.

After this date, all players running version 3 of our apps will need to update in order to continue to function. Instructions for updating are below for each platform. If you have any questions, please do get in touch. You can start a live chat in the bottom right corner now if you wish.

To find out what version you are running, you can press the Select/OK button on your player’s remote control, or move the mouse or press the space bar on a connected keyboard to bring up the TrilbyTV Player info box.

If the version showing is 4 then you are already updated – well done!
