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!

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is now available to buy in a new bundle which delivers more on the Android TV device’s smart home capabilities. The main difference is the inclusion of a Samsung’s SmartThings Link dongle. The NVIDIA SHIELD TV Smart Home Edition is available to buy now from Amazon, and is priced at $219.99 in the US.

The SmartThings Link usb dongle for the NVIDIA SHIELD became available in late 2017, and so in reality this is not a new product. But now the bundle is listed on the official NVIDIA site allowing future owners to buy the products together instead of getting them separately. Truth be told, there doesn’t seem to be any financial incentive buying the bundle, as it’s priced exactly as the cost of the items if purchased separately. So for now this more of a convenience bundle, than anything else.

What makes SmartThings Link different is its size, as it is just a USB dongle that can be plugged into the back of the SHIELD as a usual USB dongle. Once done and connected, the SmartThings Link immediately becomes a smart hub for the home, allowing SHIELD owners the option to control and manage multiple smart devices (lights, outlets and more) from the SmartThings Link, in other words from the SHIELD Android TV. You can see a full list of all the supported products here: https://www.smartthings.com/products.

So, for who is it for then? Well this bundle is specifically designed for those people who are looking for an immediate solution for both Android TV and a Smart Home Hub. Similar to the FireTV Cube by Amazon, with more power and fully compatible with Alexa. You can also buy each piece separately. In fact, as of right now the “SHIELD TV Gaming Edition” is selling curently for $179.99 (you actually get the gamepad for FREE!). Then you can always add on the $39.99 price for the SmartThings Link, the total comes in at $219.98 – the same cost as the Smart Home Edition which does not inclue with the NVIDIA Shield TV gamepad.
