The big question that haunts all Samsung Smart TV users is “How to enable unknown sources on Samsung smart TV” – But the fact that everyone must be aware of is that, unlike Samsung smart phones, Samsung smart TV runs on a OS called “Tizen” which is developed by The Linux Foundation. Tizen is based on Linux unlike the other OS’es like PatchWall or FireOS which are based upon Android. So, Tizen doesn’t have the compatibility to install and run Android Apps. So, there is no other way to sideload Android Apps on Samsung Smart TV rather than buying a Android compatible Streaming sticks like Roku or FireStick and run your favorite apps on that Streaming Stick.
If your basic purpose of buying a Streaming stick is to install and run Android Apps, then I personally suggest you to buy Amazon Fire TV Stick, as you will get around 6G of internal storage which is fair enough for you to install your favorite Android Apps. You can also buy Roku Streaming Stick (3600R) portable HD Streaming Player, which also now supports Android Apps.
Can we Enable Unknown Sources on Samsung Smart TV ?
If you feel that the setup of Streaming stick is a burdensome process then you are wrong. It is very straightforward and uncomplicated process. Here is the simple tutorial on how to setup Amazon Fire TV Stick on Samsung Smart TV. If you have opted Roku Streaming Stick, then here is the tutorial to setup Roku Streaming stick on Samsung Smart TV. If your need is just to install some of the best video streaming service apps like Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV, Twitch etc. then I recommend you to first check the availability of these apps on Tizen Store which is being updated with new apps on regular basis.
So, I conclude this post by saying that there is no other way to enable Unknown Sources on Samsung Smart TV, you can not enable developer options on Samsung TV and sideload Android Apps. So, if you want to install third party apps on Samsung Smart TV, you have to get one Android compatible Streaming Stick and install on your TV.
