How to watch all TV channels on an Android TV with the DTT Channels app
Having Android on TV is becoming more common since Android TV is found on a large range of televisions, also on HDMI players. Of course, you do not always have access to DTT channels, especially regional channels; a lack that is fixed with an app like TDT Channels. This application offers a huge number of TV and radio channels, all adapted to Android TV.
Despite the fact that Android TV is an operating system adapted to televisions, this does not imply that all open access DTT channels are seen on televisions equipped with said system. It may be the case that you want to watch a channel from another region, for example; or one that does not finish tuning well with your antenna. Also, players like the Android TV lack a television tuner; Hence, the only way to watch TV, at least in what we understand by this concept, is with dedicated applications. And one of those applications is DTT Channels: the app is complete, works great, and is perfectly adapted to Android TV.
All TV channels in one app
TDT Channels is an application for Android that we have talked about on occasion. It is developed by Android TV based on open-source software. And recently he untied the development of the Open Source version to Android TV, both for 'normal' Android devices and for the Android TV version. Precisely, TDT Channels has been updated these days to offer notable improvements, especially for the television version.
As we said, and despite the fact that Android TV is for TVs, this does not imply that the operating system offers a native television tuner since this only occurs on Smart TVs. Therefore, having an application that offers access to all DTT, both at the state level and by communities and regions, is always a good idea. Not only that, but TDT Channels also offers radio stations, but it is also a complete multimedia combo.
The operation is as expected: just search for a channel from the huge list of them included so you can play it with a couple of 'clicks, on your remote control. Of course, TDT Channels is an app that is not found in Google Play, so its installation is somewhat more cumbersome than usual. You can have it installed on your Android TV as follows:
- Since it is necessary to fight with APK files on the TV, it is recommended to use a file manager. Our recommendation is TV File Commander, Android TV.
- Download the latest DTT Channels file Android TV and upload it to your Google Drive. The best place is the root folder.
- Access the newly installed file manager on your Android TV and go to the Drive section. Sign in with your Google account.
- Enter Google Drive, look for the DTT Channels file, and click on it: your Android TV will install it as an APK is installed on your mobile.
The use of DTT Channels on Android TV is intuitive: you have the list of TV channels and the list of radios, for both, you can move with the remote control. In addition, the application allows you to save channels and stations as favorites for direct access (it is worth taking some time). You also have the option of filtering the channels by category and by Autonomous Communities: in this way you can access broadcasts that are not available in your territory.
TDT Channels does not offer pay channels since all included channels are freely accessible. The app collects and updates all the links with which the different television channels broadcast on the Internet, it does not have ads and it is free.
