Downloader for Android TV Now Available

Downloader for Android TV

We are happy to announce that Downloader for Android TV is now available in Google Play store.

This popular free application is also available on Fire TV devices and is currently among the Amazon Best Sellers list, ranking #7!  You may now also enjoy this on Android TV devices as well.

If you own a device such as the original NVIDIA SHIELD, 2019 NVIDIA SHIELD Stick, 2019 NVIDIA SHIELD TV PRO,Mi Box, or any system running the true Android TV operating system, you can now sideload apps with this application.

This app is not available in the Google Play Store for generic Android TV Boxes running stock Android.  You can simply use your browser on those devices to sideload applications.

As of now, using the search term “downloader” in Google Play on Android TV doesn’t display the app toward the front of the list.

You must search for “troypoint” or “downloader by troypoint” and then you will see the application toward the front of the list.

As this application becomes more popular, more than likely in the future you will be able to simply search “downloader”.
