    My TV is a sharp and only came with a few apps.. netflix, hulu, youtube.. etc and sharp don't have a app store... the other thing is... it don't have a web browser:facepalm: So the other day I was channel hopping and came across this on HSN makes any TV into a Android tablet ... What do you think and anyone used anything like it?... if so what say ye?

    I already have a Blu ray but it's unlocked so it plays any format plus it plays any region DVD from any country.. comes in handy with my Brit DVDs that I can't get here

    Watched the first 2:30. Looks pretty good actually. I just assume HSN is useless junk for trailer park slobs that can't afford to buy anything in the first place.

    For $99 I think it's worth it.. I'll get one first and if it's good I'll get another two... Remember I'm dropping cable tv soon... Just want to get all my ducks in a row first
