Downloader App for Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box, Sony TV, Philips, TCL, etc is back on the Google Play Store. But finding the Downloader app is a little tricky right now. So in this video I will show you how to easily find the Downloader app and install it on your Android TV device. And if it is the first time you use the Downloader application and you are new to the Android TV world, I will also show you how to install an application, sideload to be exact. In this example I’m gonna use the Puffin TV Browser, the fixed version that can still download files on your Android TV device.

Google Dislikes Sideload

The thing is that Google doesn’t want users to sideload apps anymore. They made it clear that they do not like apps that give users the ability to download apps outside from the Google Play Store for Android TV. That means that also the new version of Downloader may be at risk. My personal advice, hurry up to get it before it’s gone again!

This is the updated version of the Puffin TV Browser Downloads Fix on Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box, Mecool KM9 Pro, Sony Android TV, etc. I have done a video on the past but the method was using Downloader, an app that is not available in the Google Play Store for Android TV. So in this video we are using a different method that works great as of November 2019. Get rid of the annoying notification on Puffin TV “Download Error not supported download is not supported on this device yet” and get the ability to download files back on your Android TV device, now!

How to Fix the Download not Supported Issue on Puffin TV Browser for Android TV November 2019 update:

  • First we need to uninstall Puffin TV Browser
  • Then we need to disable the Auto updates, we do not want Puffin TV to update again to the latest version
  • Next, download the Xplore file manager from Google Play on your Android TV device. Log into Google Drive from “Web Transfer”.
  • Download Google Drive on your smartphone and log in
  • If you do not have a smartphone, log into Google Drive from your Computer
  • Now go to https://dimitrology.com from your smartphone or computer and download Puffin TV Browser from the download APK section
  • Share the apk on Google Drive
  • Back on your Android TV device, open Xplore and the apk will be available in order to install.
  • FIXED!

With this method we install a previous version of Puffin TV Browser when the download function was still available. That is why we need to disable auto-updates from Play Store so that the app doesn’t update again.

You can find the Puffin TV Browser on my website: https://dimitrology.com/android-apk/

Android TV comes without a Web Browser

Android TV can also be used to browse the web. Unfortunately, no browser comes pre-installed on the stock version of the operating system. Which is the best browser for Android TV? Since this is a question that a lot of people keep asking me, I’ve decided to do this video.

Best Web Browser For Android TV


Android TV is designed by Google who else have the Chrome Browser. But you will not find Chrome in an Android TV device. Even though this is a strange take from Google, we are very fortunate to have an amazing browser by a third part.
The web browser in this video is in my opinion the best web browser on Android TV. It gives you access to any website on the internet with great performance. It is also fully controlled with the remote. And can also download files on your device! What more you need from a Web Browser on Android TV to be the best?

Xiaomi Mi Box Sale

If you are looking for a great deal in Android TV OS then the time is right to get one of the best devices for way less. I am talking about the Xiaomi Mi Box that now sales for just $49.99 or 45.25€ on Gearbest in a flash sale. The offer is limited to the available devices and will not repeat.

As a frequent user of the Xiaomi Mi Box I can highly recommend it. The specific model is considered the older version of Xiaomi Mi Box S which basically is the same model. The small differences in the remote control, design of the external housing and the remote will mean nothing to most users. As a matter of fact I still prefer the “old” version of the remote way better than the new version which seems a little cheap in comparison with the previous.

Xiaomi Mi Box Sale For Under $50 / 45.€

Hardware Analysis And Differences

Hardware-wise the devices are identical. The only reason Xiaomi has done an updated version is mainly the issues they faced with the software updates. And in order to come clean, they preferred to update the whole Xiaomi Mi Box brand. They both are powered by an Amlogic S905X g40bit CPU with 4 cores at 2.0GHz, a Mali GPU 450, 2GB DDR3 RAM and Internal Memory of 8GB (eMMC). The 1 x USB 2.0, HDMI output and the AV output. The Mi Box S supports the Chromecast Ultra instead of the standard Chromecast of the Mi Box and a slighter newer version of Bluetooth.

Considering the hardware, performance and overall value, the Xiaomi Mi Box is an amazing deal. With this Xiaomi Mi Box sale for just under $50, is the best Android TV OS device you can get and let’s not forget, the most affordable device if you are looking for a Netflix HD / UHD compatible device! If you want more on the Xiaomi Mi Box devices, you can also check my review of the Xiaomi Mi Box S with a small comparison to the previous model here: https://dimitrology.com/xiaomi-mi-box-s-4k-hdr-android-tv-box-review-benchmark.
