How to Install Smart IPTV on SAMSUNG TV
The first thing to do is to format the memory of the USB stick. As indicated in the requirements, an old USB stick will enought, since we will use less than 2mb.
We insert it in the USB port of the PC, we go on COMPUTER, we select the Pendrive and with the right button the USB memory and we click FORMAT…
In the screen that appears we set FAT32 (recommended) or NTFS. We put the check mark in Quick Format and press START.
To simplify things we can also press the Restore device defaults button so that we already have the correct settings.
At this point, we’ll have our Usb Drive ready to put in the tv and install Smart IPTV.
Samsung TVs are divided into two groups, those with Tizen operating system (newer) and those with Non-Tizen.
