Make the Android app available for "Leanback" devices

I have one of the new Philips Android TVs. It already has Spotify Connect installed.

 

Unfortunately the usual Spotify Music app can't be installed over the Play store.

I asked Philips for that and they stated that the app needs to be customized and allowed for "Leanback" devices.

I don't see any problems, why the usual Spotify shouldn't be compatible with the TV. It also has a great remote control with a Wii-like pointer input and a full keyboard on the back.

So please Spotify, mark the app compatible with that devices.
