#17198 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...)???

#17203 You can't install Android on your TV but you can connect a box like the Nvidia Shield TV or Xiaomi Mi TV to the TV via HDMI. Depending on your TV the remote control that comes with the box will be able to do basic TV control such as turn on/off (via the HDMI connection).

Apple TV runs tvOS and FireTV runs FireOS. If you want the best user experience for general app use plus a wide selection of apps my recommendation would be Apple TV.
