ActiView is a joke, it has I think 3 movies and the selection has not changed 
in months.

ActiView was such an app. The problem with these types of apps is that though 
many people want to use them in the theaters instead of the receivers, it seems 
that the apps that have come out, support a very small number of movies. I used 
the Disney Movies Anywhere app in 2016 to see Finding Dory in a theater that 
did not have description. That was an amazing experience and the app just 
worked like it was supposed to. Though Disney promised that one could use it 
for other types of Disney, Pixar, or Star Wars movies, I tried to use it for 
the 2015 Star Wars film on DVD, and it did not work. That app has since been 
discontinued.
