Hi, S. In "The Lou" !!!
Easy fix, All you need is a Streaming Media Device (SMD) to add apps to a " smart tv"
And OMG this is very common issue, especially products like this that are made for Walmart or engineered & packaged in partnership with Walmart & are almost exclusively sold by wal-mart. They put all the junk you want to see on the box, So you will impulsively buy it, because it's cheaper than anything else you have seen in 6 months. And it's not what we think it is.....
There is no "computer" per say inside to be able to use a browser the apps do not update the way your phone or computer does
Let's say your New tv's Has Netflix app already installed & it is is version Netflix 2.0
But the latest version available is version Netflix 3.2
So Smart tv's may continue to only be able to use Netflix 2.0 which would be old school by the time you've purchased the t.v.
Which makes you go back to Walmart to either buy a new tv or another gadget from them.
Simple fix though.
Highest price, Best results, most usefulness. You can download and update all you want. You can connect any device with any plug or Bluetooth It has lots of memory, and when it's full you can expand just the memory, you can store all your pics & vids from all your old phones and cameras & computers, you can save movies and music and more. This will add a remote to your collection and tv style remotes, keyboards, cameras, smart home devices, and much more are available This is the super computer for SMD's
I think ever family on the plant should have one. (We have 3)
Medium price, medium results, High usefulness, downloads updates , connections are limited If you have iPhones or iOS devices this is as good as the PlayStation per say. 32g memory as much as the newer phones have. Mostly for iOS snobs like me, Team Android will not enjoy this.
Low price, medium results, low usefulness.
plug & play this or Roku or any other cheap SMD, it's the
modern day Dish or Satellite tv . updates automatically, no other connections available, adds a remote to your collection. Low memory.
I Very Highly recommended this for every Mother (or Parent) on our planet.
i hope you feel your question was answered on how to add apps to your smart t.v. & please follow up after you have resolved your issue in the comment below.
