My Spotify for Android TV is stuck on the Spotify logo screen, I can cast music to it from my phone's Spotify app and music will play, but I can't browse for music and playlists on my TV anymore. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but the problem persists. I'm still on the premium subscription, so the tv app should still be working, I'm not sure what's happening.
