#16860 Hello everyone,,
I was wondering if it's possible to turn a smart TV (with its own OS), into an android TV.
Since my smart TV built-in OS doesn't seem to be updated anymore and there being no good apps for it.

Is it possible maybe to install it with through a USB or are there alternatives methods (besides fire-stick, chromecast, apple tv, etc...)???

#16863 It is not possible to install Android to your TV but you can connect an Android TV-based box ia HDMI. Examples are Nvidia Shield and the 'Mi Box' products from Xiaomi. Depending on the box and your TV, some of these boxes may also be able to turn on/off your TV via the HDMI (CEC) connection.
