No one here would know since this is just a community forum.

They clearly could easily have an Android TV app - they run Android TV on their own streaming device and have an app for that (albeit an app that runs on a modified version of Android TV).  And the FireOS version (for Amazon FireTV devices) is close enough that people sideload it onto Android TV devices and run it (mostly) successfully.  So it appears the reason they don't have an Android TV app is not technical.  (Well, Android TV isn't quite as standardized as the platforms created by the hardware manufacturers, but it seems close enough.)  So some of us assume there is a business/contractual reason they haven't released an Android TV version.  It is possible - if that was the case - that this reason may go away now that the service isn't part of AT&T and they will come out with one, but that is just a hope.
