Hi there, @stanperovic. Please be advised that the APK file format is usually used on the Android operating system and not on our Samsung TVs.

@stanperovic  supported files can be seen in this article  (not a Uk link but situation will be the  similar) and Apk's  which are used in the Android system are not  included.  The Tv's use the Tizen system.  https://www.samsung.com/za/support/tv-audio-video/what-file-types-does-my-samsung-qled-tv-play/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Thanks for the advice, guys. So, it sounds like I need to learn about Tizen.
