How to enable Hybrid Tv (hbbtv) on a KS8000 55"

Hello,

Does anyone know how to enable the HbbTV function on a KS8000?
I have firmware version 1250. I searched in the app store for the HbbTV Activation app and did not find it.
I found it on a newer tv I purchased yesterday (UE32T5372) and went ahead and activated it in settings/broadcasting/advance/hbbtv.

Unless it is not supported, I don't see a reason why I can't find the app.

I am located in Greece where the service is available (as I was able to enable it on my new TV).

Thanx

@ChrisNico: Where did you purchase your KS8000 TV from? HbbTV is referenced in the user manual, however it does state that the service is only available on certain models in certain geographical areas. If your TV was intended for use outside Greece then this may explain why it can't be activated in Settings > Broadcasting > Expert Settings > HbbTV, or why the Activation App isn't available in the App Store. For further clarity, please check out page 76 of the user manual via the link below.

First of all, thank you for your reply!
The TV was purchased in Greece from an authorized dealer. The locale settings are "Greece". Additionally, I have activated another Samsung TV, as I wrote above, last night. The procedure was to download the "HbbTV Activation" app from the Tizen Store. I suspect that this enables the "Settings > Broadcasting > Expert Settings > HbbTV" option.
In the KS8000, I would assume that I would need to run a similar procedure, first by downloading the Activation app and then proceed to the Settings/... However, I cannot find (the app is not available(?)) the app in the KS8000 app store.

Is there a way to find out whether the particular app is actually available for the particular model KS8000 for Greece? Because as far as country availability I am 100% sure that Greece is ok. I am not sure about the model though, that's why I posted the above question.
