    Hi,

    Hi,

    due to security Reasons this Feature is not in the Android version on this TV.

    Please be aware, adding non approved Apps could harm the Android environment.
    While it seems "kind of easy" to solve Issues with Android on a Smartphone by just reinstalling the Android new to the Phone, it is rather impossible for Endusers to do so on a TV.

    I think you can understand that it would not that satisfying for Users to have to pay for a Repair only because they wanted to "play around" a bit.

    Thanks for Understanding
    Thomas

    Thanks for the answer.. Basically I understand your response... But it is the same thing with all Android enabled devices. When coding something to those, Google asks before publishing app to Play store that app have to be tested using real device Without that possibility you know what the quality of apps would be in Play

    Already there is Apps in Google which can be installed to Phillips Android TV, but those doesn't work...

    Thanks
    -Pete

    Hi,

    But it is the same thing with all Android enabled devices
    So far i have not seen that much 2.500€ Android Devices.

    As written before, Mobile Device can be restored, more or less very easy and most of the Times without any technical Knowledge.

    But this is not a mobile Device or a small stb.
    So the Answer is and will be: no
