Before you begin:
- Ensure your TV supports the Downloader App.
- Make sure your TV is connected to Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
- Keep your Smart TV updated to the latest firmware.
- Allow app installations from unknown sources in security settings.
- Sign up for an account to access the Amazon Appstore.
- Activate ADB Debugging in developer options.
- Download the Downloader App file to a USB drive for sideloading.
Step-by-Step Guide to Install the Downloader App
Step 1: Navigating to the app store on your smart TV
First, navigate to the app store on your smart TV.
- For most Samsung and LG models, this can be done by pressing “Home” and then selecting “Apps.”
- If you’re unsure how to access the app store on your specific smart TV model, check the manual that came with it or search online for more information.
If there’s no option to install apps at all in your TV’s settings (or if you don’t see an icon named “Downloader”), there may be something wrong with either:
- Your internet connection,
- The version of Android running inside the device; or
- The hardware itself (in which case we recommend getting a new set).
Step 2: Searching for the downloader app
Once you’ve gone through the steps above, it’s time to find your downloader app. If it’s not already installed on your smart TV, here’s how:
- Search for “downloader” in the app store. The most common way people find their downloader apps is by searching for them by name. If this doesn’t work for you, try searching for “downloader” instead—this may help narrow down results and make it easier to find what you’re looking for!
- If all else fails…sometimes manufacturers provide their own version of a downloader app (like Samsung Smart Hub), so check with them if all else fails!
Step 3: Installing the Downloader App on Smart TVs
- Open the app store: Navigate to your Smart TV’s app store (e.g., Google Play Store, LG Content Store, etc.).
- Search for the Downloader App: Type “Downloader” in the search bar and press enter.
- Select the Downloader App: Choose the Downloader App from the search results.
- Install the app: Click the “Install” button to start the installation process.
- Open the Downloader App: Open the app from your TV’s app menu once installed.
Step 4: Logging in/setting up an account (if required)
If you have an account, log in by clicking on the ‘sign in’ button. If not, you can still use the app without logging in by clicking on ‘Create an account’.
When prompted to enter your username and password, enter those details and click ‘OK’ or ‘Next’.
Step 5: Basic navigation through the downloader app
Navigating through the app is relatively simple. You can use the remote control to navigate between categories and scroll through lists of available content.
The left and right arrow buttons move you back and forth between categories, while the up and down arrow buttons allow you to scroll through lists of available content within each category.
