Download and install Downloader
Best and easiest way to install this application is by using Downloader. Because “Downloader” available for both Android TV via Play Store and Amazon Fire TV devices via Amazon App Store. Go to your default TV app store and search “downloader”. Here I am using Play Store.
Now you will see “Install” button like below picture. Select it to install.
Once download completed click on “Done” button.
Set permission for Downloader to install Unknown Apps
In order to download and install apps away from Play Store application, you have to grant permissions. Since we are using this application to install a TV app, we need to grant permission. For that go to settings.
Now you will see settings panel appear on your right side of the TV. Find and select “Device Preferences”
Now scroll and find “Security & restrictions”. Select and open it.
Now open “Unknown Sources”.
Now you will see list of your Android apps. From that list find “Downloader” application. Select it and press “Enter” or “OK” button to allow access.
Installing Browser plugin for Downloader (Optional)
Some Android TV devices required to install this plugin to browse website. If your device can browse websites without this plugin please continue to next step.
Now open “Downloader” application. Once you opened it, you will see a place to enter web address. In order to use browsing feature we have to install browser plugin. Enter below address and press “GO” or “enter” to download browser plugin for TV.
You will automatically redirect to installation once download complete. Installation is very simple. Once installation completed you will see “Done” option only. Select it.
Download and Install AppLinked
Open “Downloader” application and enter below code.
Now you will see this AppLinked app start to download.
You will automatically redirect to installation once download completed. Click on “Install” button located at then right bottom corner. If you receive message like
Blocked by Play ProtectThis app may be harmful
Go to “Details” like on above picture. Then Select and click on “Install anyway (unsafe)” button.
Reason: By default Android does not allow users to keep two Android TV app stores. Only allow one. That’s why you receive blocked by play protect message.
If you receive a message like
App Not Installed !
Uninstall all previous versions on AppLinked. Then try installing.
Set permissions for AppLinked to install TV apps and games
Now you have officially installed AppLinked to your Android TV box. Now its time to set permissions to install any TV app or game you like. Go to settings.
Go to “Device Preferences”
From the list appeared, scroll and find “security & restrictions”. Select it.
Select “Unknown Sources”.
Now you will see list of apps appear. Select “AppLinked” and press “Enter” on your TV remote to allow access.
Now you can access Applinked stores and install TV apps and games on your TV box.
Using AppLinked Stores to download Android TV apps and games
Open AppLinked application. You will see area to enter code. Codes enter on AppLinked commonly called as “Applinked codes”. When you want to install any TV app using AppLinked just google it. For example “AppLinked code for VLC” and find the code.
In order to access AppLinked stores
- Enter Applinked code
- Press “Submit” to access AppLinked store.
I will share list of most popular AppLinked codes in near future. Most of the stores are in test mod and does not contain any valuable TV apps. Not worth sharing useless codes for now.
