Watch Foreign TV on SmartTV|
Here are three methods for viewing foreign TV channels on SmartTV. As examples I am using Swedish TV and SONY Android TV,
but these methods should be applicable to other foreign TV Channels and to other brands of Android TV.

Install from Google Play Store
When possible try this method. A few international channels are available on the Android TV version of the Google
Play Store. I was lucky and found SVT Play and installed it without problems.
For mobile devices such as phones and tablets there are many more TV apps available. I had TV4 Play installed
on my tablet - took a backup copy of its apk and sideloaded it onto my Android TV - without issues.
Create a Web Bookmark - IPTV
This method should be possible on any SmartTV - not just on Android TV - though the way of creating the bookmark might differ - for instance a bookmark inside the
browser. I used this method to create a Chrome Browser bookmark on the TV's Home screen to the Swedish
Viafree web site, and navigated further to their most popular channel TV3.
