    Angry No Marketplace or Play store app on Philips Smart TV

    Just bought a new Smart TV 42pfl4208 could not find the app for playstore or marketplace. I was told by the salesman that I need to purchase the mediaplayer to install new apps.
    I think a smart tv should be like a smart phone where I can download the available apps in the googles stores and no need to add a multi media box to add new apps - what is the need to buy a smart tv when I can use my old tv and fix up the multi media player?
    All of the apps pre-installed are useless to me except the youtube and I just not able to install any other apps which made me so frustrating and regretted buying a Philips Smart TV.

    Is there anyone who can tell me how to put in the app for playstore or marketplance please?

    Hi,

    you might don't understand the concept of our SMartTV's exactly or your Salesmen did not inform you correctly.

    Let me do that.

    SmartTV is a Platform where you can select from a list of predefined Services.

    You can access this List by opening the SmartTV via the Remote or the TV Menu.
    By doing that you do enter a Website where we do share the Services with you.

    It is not like on a Smartphone, that you Download and/or install Apps.

    In SmartTV you have the App Gallery where you can see the Full List of available Services.

    Besides this Apps/Service, you cannot "install" any new Apps.

    SmartTV is not Android or Google, you don't have a marketplace or the Playstore.

    Hope this helps.
