I am trying to find out if I can add android apps from the google play store to my Sony Bravia TV as well as to my Sony UBP-X700 streaming blu ray player. Trying to see if I can add Gears TV to the devices before purchasing another Nvidia shield player.
The manual for the bd player doesn't mention Android and seems to allow you to download a limited number of app. Check the my apps menu to see if Gears TV is an option.
If the TV allows you to access the play store then you should be able to download any app to it from there. I don't think you can side load apps on a TV.
