Good, not great

published

Bought this for new apartment. It is good, but not great. Sound is fine. Picture quality could be a tiny better, but it is great value for money. Would also prefer a mouse type remote.

Purchased in January 2020.

I am struggling to get Google play to login on the tv's internet browser as it says it is insecure. Without logging in to Google, how do i download and then install chrome or similar so that I can login to Google and securely download Kayo and Disney?

The Smart TV functions on this TV is limited (not Android based) and you will have trouble finding any useful apps. I have an Amazon Fire TV unit installed to my TV but would recommend something like Apple TV/Fire TV/Chromecast/or another Android based media player to supplement the TV with Australian apps.

according to the TEAC site for the TV here: https://www.teac.com.au/product/43-ultra-hd-hdr-smart-tv/ the TV does not come with Stan pre installed. It comes with Netflix. There is facility for installing android apps in the smart tv section (accessed via the menu on the remote control. I have never installed Stan on any device so have no experience in downloading and installing the Stan app - if one exists. Probably does, but Ive never looked or researched it via google or via the Stan help section on its site. Going to the Stan site right now, I find this: https://help.stan.com.au/hc/en-us/articles/203690720-How-do-I-watch-Stan-on-my-television- which lists TVs which currently come with Stan pre installed. Stan on that page gives the makes and models TVs with Stan preinstalled. various LG, Samsung , Philips, HiSense etc are listed. But not TEAC. Stan writes on that page that they are working to include more makes of TVs and more models to include pre installed Stan. On the Stan web page Stan gives setup guides for each TV it lists as having Stan pre-installed. Stan also has a help page here: https://help.stan.com.au/hc/en-us/articles/115007754288-Setting-up-Stan-on-my-Android-TV and Stan says on this page : "Stan is available on a range of Android TVs running Android TV version 5 and above. The easiest way to check which Android TV version you have installed is by going to Settings, then About and checking the Android TV version.

Once your supported Android TV device is running Android TV version 5 or above, then you can go ahead and install the Stan app from Google Play." end quote. So, the first thing to do is check the android TV OS to see if it is version 5 or above. If it is, you can use the TV to download and install the Stan app from Google Play. And it should work. However, if you prefer Stan to work on the TV out of the box as soon as you get it home and plug it in, then you are limited to the models and makes listed by Stan as having Stan pre installed.

Its not really much different to buying a computer with bundled software. If an app is not included at purchase, it can be installed later. So long as the app is compatible with the Operating system. For smart TVs and Stan, than means the smart TV must have android TV OS version or above.

There is another way of making any TV a smart TV - by way of an external android media box. The downsides and upsides of using an external android box need to be considered, but any LCD TV can use such an Android box, and as Android OS advances it is fairly cheap to update the box. this link discusses android boxes for TVs. https://androidpcreview.com/best-android-tv-box/ It depends upon individual preferences as to how one implements "smart" facilities in the home via TVs. The simplest way is buy a TV with everything preloaded. But, as we have seen, that limits choice as not every smart TV has Stan preinstalled. For some people, an ordinary LCD TV and an android box or the Apple equivalent (Apple TV box) is perfectly fine and flexible. Some people have an android box, an apple tv box , a smart TV and a fridge connected to the internet and the Tax department. I havent gone that far yet.

I was not able to install Stan on this TV as it's Smart TV app eco-system is quite limited. Get an external media player ie. Apple TV/Fire TV/Chromecast etc.
