So, you’ve just unboxed your new cheap smart TV, plugged it in and turned it on – and now you need to know how to set it up. Not to worry; we have a list of the best smart TV apps for you to download to get you started.
One of the most influential reasons you might be buying a TV is for your own entertainment, so this will be the most comprehensive section in this blog on apps you need on your TV.
For user-generated content, you can’t do much better than YouTube. This extremely popular video platform has plenty of home videos about cats, music, and human mishaps. There’s a lot on there that would put You’ve Been Framed! to shame, but it can certainly fill a few evenings with laughter.
YouTube is completely free to use, download and sign in to.
You’ve no doubt heard of this trendy new way to watch television, and with good reason; Netflix is incredibly easy to use and it’s getting better with every passing month. There are plenty of shows across a range of genres to entertain you.
Netflix is free to download, but you’ll need to pay a reasonable subscription fee to get access to their content. Fortunately, it is incredibly quick to sign up and cancel your subscriptions with this platform so you can start and end your payments with Netflix as best suits your financial requirements.
Much like Netflix, Amazon Prime TV offers you a range of films and TV series through their app. It’s not quite as user-friendly as Netflix, but it is still a great platform. The app is free to download, but you’ll need to pay a subscription fee to enjoy the shows available on it.
Whether you’re a hardcore console gamer or you just want to play a short minigame from time to time to keep you sharp; you can access it all from our smart cheap TVs. Most of these are games that you can play from your sofa with just the TV remote.
If you’re a gamer, then PlayStation Now is the app for you. With this app, you’ll never have to worry about juggling remotes or moving your console from room to room again. Download this app to choose from hundreds of games for as little as £8.99/month, or even £4.17/month if you sign up for a year.
Flying Fish 2
This cute little app mimics the infamous Flappy Bird game – one of the most popular mobile games ever – and is accessible on your TV when you download the app. Time your button presses to make the fish fly through a series of obstacles!
Endless runner games have been popular for decades; if you’ve ever played tomb runner then you can get a similar sense of satisfaction from Urban Ninja too.
If you prefer something a little more strategic to keep your mind active, then Nut War is the TV app strategy game to keep you busy between shows. Engage in a war between cute squirrels and nasty rats.
Sometimes we like to leave our televisions on in the background while we get on with other things, which is why you might be interested in the Smart TV apps that can turn your TV into a music player.
Having this app ready to go on your television is great for parties. Share your playlist with your friends or let them sign into their own accounts on your app so you can hear what they’re into as well.
We already mentioned YouTube for general entertainment, but there is also a lot of music videos available on YouTube that you can leave running in the background whenever you’re hosting a party or just doing chores.
There are plenty more apps out there to keep you entertained. We haven’t even touched on educational apps for kids, shopping channels or lifestyle aids. All of the apps mentioned in this content are available to use on most of our smart cheap Samsung TVs, so go to our online store today to find the latest deals on great cheap smart TVs.
