As filmplus is 3rd party APK file, we must install it manually, not possible to download it from the TV’s play store. So, you must follow any one of the methods from this guide. I sorted these methods by a tech-savvy.
1. Power ON your TV, and make sure to connect to the Internet connection. Wi-Fi would be a great choice while installing.

Method 2 – Using Puffin Browser
A lot of guides suggest an ES File Explorer method as an alternative method to Downloader. But, ES File Explorer recently got removed from the Play Store due to security issues. So, I decided to come up with another working guide using Puffin Browser.
Why puffin browser instead of Chrome?
Sadly, Google Chrome is not available on TVs which is why we’re using the puffin browser to download the Filmplus app on the TV.
Simply follow the steps explained below without fail.
1. First, download and install the Puffin web browser from Play Store to your smart TV.
2. Open the Puffin browser.
3. Visit the filmplus download page from that browser. Type this URL; https://filmplusapk.com/dl and press the OK button on the remote.
4. The apk file will be saved to the Downloads folder. So, select that apk file and press OK.
5. It will take you to the “Unknown sources” option to enable. You must enable the “Install Unknown Apps” option.
6. Next, the installation window prompts you, to press the OK on the Install button.
7. Wait for a complete installation, open the app, and enjoy.
Most importantly, this method doesn’t require separate file managers, default file manager is enough.
