Add apps to an older smart TV

In my Smarthub there are few options.  I am trying to add two apps, specifically YouTubeTV and FuboTV but there doesn't seem to be an option to add apps that are not in the store.  It's a 4 year old model, I think, UN32J5205AFXZA and Smart Hub seems limited to Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, Vudu, Google Play, Fandango and a browser.  There are some other options but nothing I have ever heard of.  Is there a way to circumvent this option.

 

Thanks

Hi @Waidesworld 

 

The general rule is, if the app is not available when searching the 'Apps' section of the Smart Hub, then it won't be available for your model of TV we're afraid. Have a look at this useful link.

Chris,

 

I had guessed as much, so I bought a Firestick and now everything is up and running $35 later.  Thanks for the confirmation.
