Hopefully someone here can help. I have kodi on my Phillips 55PUS6401But I'm unable to sideload apps like bt sport and the google store options are pretty limited generally. Any one had any experience of sideloading onto these TVs? Any help appreciate

It runs Android TV not mobile Android. Not all apps will work on Android TV including the BT Sport app. You actually do have the full Android Playstore installed but it will only show what is certified to work on Android TV. Take a look around the Nvidia Shield (also runs Android TV - though personally would ignore the game talk since could be doubtful the TV would be powerful enough to run unlike the shield) posting here for tips of what you can and cant do.

Worthwhile sideloading the likes of "APKTime" which is a collection of apps you would normally have to side load but it also includes an Android TV Section.Nearly every thing works on my shield (also worked on my previous TV - Sony Android one) from the apk collections in the app (also has adfree versions of the likes of Terrarium TV).

I got a shield and it's great but the apps let it down, as not many, how do you side load that app

I had zero issue side loading any APK of my choice to the TV. But with the latest update there seems to be a bug where side loading is locked.

I can't seem to load the Philips forums atm. But there was a few threads about it a 2 weeks ago when I had the same issue.

Hopefully it's just a bug and it'll be fixed. Would be disappointed if this got locked.
