I have a LG smart TV Mod. 55 EG 920 T. I would like to watch free TV, movies etc. Q: do I need an Android TV Box or can I set-up the Smart TV without a Android TV-Box? If I can set-up the Smart TV with out a Android TV Box then how do I have to set it up? In addition I have a 1 TB external HDD Iomega and would like to hear music and see movies which I have loaded on the HDD direct via the smart TV but I can't. I am glad if someone can give me advice what I have to do or buy to use it via smart TV. Thank you in advance.
Your "smart" TV will only allow you to use the built in apps which won't take you to any illegal sources of movies or TV.
If you connect an Android TV box to your TV and install KODI that will allow access to legal and illegal sources of movies and TV over the internet. Many Android boxes come preconfigured with KODI addons to do this. These are not legal to sell in some countries. You can install KODI yourself legally and install the addons you want.
