I don't own an Android TV device, so it would be difficult to test this =(
Okay, I do a first test on my nVidia ShieldTV, based on AndroidTV 8. The results are really good:
-There is no launcher icon for the AndroidTV-Launcher. This is really necessary for using the app without problems on AndroidTV. And it is easy to integrate it into your app. I think it was just an icon and a adding a line in the manifest.
-On the first startup (Lets get startet button) it is not 100% clear, what to do with the remote to get push the "Lets get startet" button. A little hint would be nice to press the enter button on the remote.
-It is easy possible to walk through app-setting area and to do text-input with the remote. You can allways see where the focus is at the moment. But sometimes it is not possible to use the remote. For example the "Test connection" button within nzbget-configuration is not possbile to press, you will need a keyboard for that.
-It is not possible or in other words not easy to navigate with the remote to the feed-control-area in nzbget. So you need a keyboard or mouse to start-stop-pause/refresh and so on.
-The "update server info" function within the newznab area, let crashed the app.
-The unlock the pro feature dialog would be nice in widescreen. Also it is not possible to switch back to widescreen-mode.
-"No previos licence found error"
-You need to buy a licence with an android-phone. Then it is possible to use the pro-app within androidTV.
-There is no IMDB AndroidTV app but you can sideload the com-imdb.mobile apk. Sadly it is not really usable.
-DL status watching from internal running nzbGet on androidTV is working really good:
If you want to run nzbGet as apk/app on your Android device or on AndroidTV you should take a look at this page:
Perhaps you can setup a androidTV emulator to test some androidTV changes. Should be possible with Android-Studio.
