Also I down loaded BT sports but it says I need google play services which I down loaded but seems not to help?
Can you advise.

Hi there and welcome

Aptoide tv uses its own app store, and foes not work with Google play as it does not have the play services for this.

You will find it only runs a limited amount of apps, and the ones you listed here are not available on the store.

What you need to do is get a Google Chromecast, which you can get here

www.google.com/chromecast

Once purchase, you connect it to the projector and via your smartphone you can play these apps.

Your smartphone then acts as a remote for the device.

But this is what you need to do to run these apps.

Thanks ,
However, is this a separate device which you connect to your projector or do you download it directly onto the projector ?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 months ago.

Yes this is correct, you connect it to the display port on the projector

Hi Richard ,
I've checked out chrome cast , it supports Bt sport but does not appear to have the Sky go app?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 months ago.

yes it is ok as well, any app that runs on Android can be used on it.

You can see the app here
