How to Download Third-Party IPTV App to your Samsung Smart TV

Most Smart TVs come preloaded with a selection of apps for immediate use. However, certain brands like Samsung and LG provide the option to add more apps through their respective app stores, allowing you to customize your home theater experience further. On the other hand, Vizio Smart TVs do not support the addition or downloading of additional apps; all available apps are displayed on their home screen.

Please note that the availability of Samsung Smart TV apps may vary depending on the country or region.

To successfully download third-party apps on your Samsung Smart TV, you will need a storage device such as a Flash Drive, SD card, or Pen Drive.

As you proceed with downloading third-party apps, you must enable the installation from unknown sources by activating the Unknown Sources feature on your Samsung Smart TV. To accomplish this, please follow the steps provided below.

Enabling the installation from Unknown Sources

  • Power on your Samsung Smart TV.
  • From the home screen, go to the Settings menu.
  • Choose the Personal tab and locate the Security option.
  • Within the Security settings, you will find the option for Unknown Sources. Activate this option by toggling the switch beside it.
  • With Unknown Sources enabled, you are now able to download apps from sources other than the Play Store.

Enabling the Developer Mode

Next, you’ll need to activate the Developer Mode on your Samsung Smart TV. Enabling Developer Mode grants you access to a variety of useful tools and adjustments for your Smart TV. One of the capabilities unlocked by Developer Mode is the ability to download third-party apps. To enable Developer Mode, carefully follow the provided steps below:

  1. Power up your Samsung Smart TV.
  2. Navigate to the settings menu and select the Smart Hub option.
  3. Choose the Apps section.
  4. Upon clicking the apps panel, a prompt will appear asking for a PIN. Enter the default code “12345” using your remote. This is the standard PIN for all Samsung Smart TVs.
  5. A window will now appear displaying the Developer mode configuration. Toggle the Developer Mode switch to the ON position.
  6. Next, input the IP address of the computer you wish to connect to the TV, and click OK. (You can find the IP address of your computer from Microsoft support).
  7. Finally, reboot your TV, and you’re all set to proceed.

Downloading Third-party apps using External Storage Devices

To transfer files to your Samsung Smart TV, such as using a flash drive, you can insert the USB drive into the TV. To successfully accomplish this procedure, please adhere to the following steps:

  1. Open the web browser on your computer or laptop.
  2. Locate a trusted source that provides the .apk file for the desired app you wish to install on your Samsung Smart TV. Download the .apk file.
  3. Connect the Flash Drive to your computer or laptop and transfer the downloaded file to the Flash Drive.
  4. Safely remove the Flash Drive from your computer and insert it into the USB port of your TV.
  5. Access the Flash Drive on your TV and locate the .apk file. Select the file and choose “Install”.
  6. Wait for the installation process to complete. Once finished, you can now open and enjoy the newly installed app on your Samsung Smart TV.
