What apps can I download for my TV?

    There are two ways to check for available apps to download and install on your Android TV™.

    Note:

    • Not all apps for Android™ devices can be used with the TV. Using Google PlayStore on the TV displays only apps that are supported by the TV.
    • You can purchase apps from the Google Play store when logged into your Google™ account.
    • You can also install apps you have already purchased for your Android mobile devices for free if there is an Android TV equivalent.
    • The TV doesn't support the installation of .APK files from USB drives.

     

    Check the Google Play store app on your TV

    1. On the supplied remote control, press the HOME button
    2. Under the Apps category, select Google Play store.
