I purchased a VU premium Android TV with Android Oreo. It doesn’t have Prime video app pre installed, nor does the stock play store allow access to the full list of Android apps, which I found bizarre.

Still, I took a pen drive with the Prime video apk and installed it through a file explorer on the TV.

The app starts and goes in to the sign in screen, where I enter my credentials, but it doesn’t make it past the screen. I don’t find the app in the installed list on the TV directly, but can find it among the list of installed apps from settings. Unfortunately, it still doesn’t open or allow me to browse, just goes back to the start screen when I try and open it.

If anyone’s had experience with this, should I be doing something different? This is not pixel light but the full blown premium Android TV from VU.

Do let me know in case anyone has suggestions, thanks…

Use modded APK
I don’t know if I can post external link.
Search Google as modded APK for Android TV

What does the modded APK modify? Most modded apps allow you to bypass the subscription to those services, but I’m not sure that is the issue in my case…

Does the mod change anything specific about installation or setup on an Android TV?

Thanks. Is there any way to do it without sideloading?

Download aptoide tv app from net and install to your tv.
It’s like Google play store.
Open app, search primevideo and install.

Thanks, but that didn’t work either. When I search and try to install Prime video from aptoid, it just returns and comes back to main screen. With other apps, it at least doesn’t display that behaviour.

I wonder if there’s another way…

1. You can use amazon prime video in browser no?
2. You can mirror share content from your phone , so open app in your phone and mirror share to your TV.

1. True. But I’d rather not browse from the web. It’s just bothersome.
2. True, but dependencies on other device being always available and within range…

I just imagined there would be an easier, more… satisfactory way to use the prime video app just like others. There must be, I may need to look harder… Perhaps the kind folk here could provide more tips.
