TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Why can i not download the aptoide app on my smart tv. It is a samsung.
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Where are you trying to do this at? From your computer, or on the browser on the tv?
I ask because the tv is not able to run any app on the market. Smart tvs, including your samsung, are extremely limited in their abilities. They have a specialized firmware, and limited processing/memory power. They are only able to run the apps that are explicitly available within the samsung tv (smart hub) app marketplace.
You cannot install 3rd party or aftermarket apps from other sources, including those from google play, aptoide, etc.
Just because you may be able to get to that aptoide storefront in a browser on the tv does not mean it can actually run the content.
If you need the ability to run non native apps, your best option would be to bypass the tvs internal smart functions, and instead connect up a more capable external streaming device, such as a chromecast, roku, appletv, fire tv, htpc or smart bluray
how would you bypass the tvs internal smart functions
Thanks for the help.
