  1. Good day Mr. Kazhiko.
    Can a VPN software like ExpressVPN be installed on Smart TV and stream Netflix successfully from different regions?

    Samsung SmartTV with TIZEN OS cannot run a VPN. Anyway to overcome that issue?

    In your opinion, with SmartTV Brand would you choose to run streaming services like Netflix, Apple, Hbomax, Prime,Disney successfully using VPN.


    • Pikay, I totally understand there are certain TV OS which don’t support VPN’s but so far from my experience I am in favor of VPNs because of their 2 main points 1. Total privacy and 2. Content Access from all regions.

  2. I connected the 7plus app to my Hisense tv was told there was a technical problem which seemed to be l had no way of getting a code. I am 83years old not impressed with smart tv.Too complicated

    • Hey Marlene, I totally agree with you, sometimes these apps and processes become a bit technical where people do face issues, but almost every time they arise either due to silly mistakes or we trying to follow a few incorrect steps in the process.

      The best way to get rid of them is first to calm down and analyze steps from start to end, After that it will be sorted once you figure out where was the issue.

      Thank you

  3. I am facing some issues to install the apk. From where we can find out the built-in file explorer in Hisense smart tv older version?

    • Hey Aneesha, it’s not possible to get the built-in explorer as that depends on your particular Hisense TV model, but you can manually get the APK file of the file manager from online trusted APK websites and can manually install it on your Hisense TV.

  4. hi, I have downloaded the APK file and put it on a USB, however the file does not show up when the USB is connected to the TV. I Have a Hisense 43in Series 6 (43P6). Should it be compatible with this process?

    • Hey Harry, as you do have the Hisense P6 series smart TV which works on Vidaa operating system. The vidaa operating system is android based so it will accept the Android APK files and can install them, but for it, first you need to manually get the file manager to see your downloaded APK file.
