Telefunken smart TV apps: Can they keep up with the Android TV? Or is it better to use a different television or outsource the smart functions to an Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV Stick, for example? You can find out everything you need to know about Telefunken smart TV apps in this article.
How can I install Telefunken Smart TV apps?
To open the Telefunken App Store you have to press the “MENU” button, then click on Internet-SMARTTV and press the red button on the remote control. Under “Entertainment” you will then find the VEWD App Store. The installation itself is very easy: Select the desired app in the App Store and press “Download”, then everything runs automatically, the installation is started after the download. As soon as the app has been installed, it will be displayed in the general overview and you can use it.
Here we have a short video showing how you can set up your Telefunken Smart TV Iptv:
What does the Telefunken App Store offer?
With a television, the most important apps are the streaming services. Here we have two pieces of good news: Netflix and YouTube are available in the store. The apps from ARD and ZDF are also available. But then the good news ends. Amazone Prime, Disney Plus, Twitch and Co. are unfortunately not available. Regrettably, the selection of apps is not very large, and the sports streaming provider DAZN, for example, is unfortunately also looked for in vain.
Are the missing apps a buying factor?
For those who already own a Telefunken television, this point is of course not interesting. The question is difficult to answer, in the end everyone has to know that for themselves. If you can get a TV for a good price, an external player can pay off. And even big manufacturers like Sony and Philips only offer updates for a very short time. Therefore, it often makes sense to rely on an external player. Therefore, we would recommend not putting too much stock in the Smart TV apps.
What about updates to the Telefunken smart TV apps?
The update cycle of each application is different, since the manufacturer of the application is responsible for it. However, according to our research, well-known applications have no or almost no delays. Even between Android and iOS there is a small delay in the smartphone sector. Therefore, this is not a factor that you absolutely have to consider when making a purchase.
Can you really only use the Telefunken smart TV apps?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to install another store on the device itself that would then run smoothly. But if you really would like to use a few more apps, here are the different ways you can do that. As already mentioned, the problem can be solved using external devices such as set-top boxes from well-known manufacturers. Alternatively, content can be transferred from the mobile phone to the television via the Telefunken Wireless Display . However, you have to note here that this function only works with Android phones.
If the Telefunken Smart TV apps are not enough for you, you can use one of these devices, for example.
Can you install Amazon Prime on a Telefunken TV?
Is it possible to install Amazon Prime on a Telefunken Smart TV? As we know, it is not possible via the in-house app store, for this you would have to root the operating system of the Telefunken TV or replace it completely. So it would be possible to install Amazon Prime on a Telefunken TV. However, we clearly advise against this. We have picked out a much easier and very workable solution for you. With this solution you can easily use Amazon Prime on your Telefunken TV. As so often in this article, the magic word is set-top box.
Alternatives to Telefunken smart TV apps
First of all, we have to classify Telefunken among the television manufacturers. The company settles in the lower half of the mid-range televisions. The devices don’t cost that much money and usually offer quite a lot in return. In terms of price-performance ratio, the Telefunken televisions are slightly above those from Sharp and slightly below those from Grundig. So these two brands might be worth a look for you if you’re watching TV in this price range. However, these brands have the same problem as Telefunken, they use their own operating system and therefore unfortunately only offer a few apps. As we have already mentioned, there is no sensible replacement for the Telefunken store and, as already mentioned twice, the only option is to use an external player.
