I bought a Hisense 40h5b Smart TV, that uses Opera not Roku. I have Sling TV service but there is no app on Opera App store. I have checked the OS on the tv through different means and they all say iOS 5.0.1 like MAC OS X. Can I uplevel the os to iOS 8.0 or newer to get the sling TV app? If so how?
Hisense doesn't have a firmware upgrade for your model TV. Newer versions may not be compatible.
Can't you access Sling TV with the Opera browser that is installed on the TV. It should work the same way it would on any computer.
I can get to the sling tv app through the browser but it won't run. Says it downloaded but don't know how to get to it. Also, Sling tv says I have to have ios 7.0 or better to run it, app store say ios 8.0 or better. Either way can't get the browser or ios to update past where its at. There has to be a way to work this. The TV isn't even a year old.
