Lots of folks have written in asking about how to sideload APK files onto the Nvidia Shield TV. It’s actually pretty easy provided you have the following prerequisites:

1. Sideload launcher:
2. ES File Explorer:

You’ll then need to turn on the unknown app sources option in the security menu. After that you will be able to install apps from the APK file!

    Just got an Nvidia shield pro yesterday…may send it back…Since they got rid of ES File Explorer its too hard to set up Apps turned a 10 step process into a 50-60 step process and too easy to get overwhelmed if you arent a techy…all the youtubes include ES File Explorer in their setup guides making them useless if you bought something new

    This method is outdated. Best way to install APks on your Shield is to download (Send to Tv app) from Playstore. It lets you send APks directly from your phone to your Nvidia Shield. Then Download the X-plorer File manager then find your APK in local storage in X-plorer . It should be under downloads, Click on the APK to install and you're done. 1000x more simple then all this stuff. I just installed Dolphin Emulator on my shield TV using my method. You're welcome 🙂

    in speaking of loading apks onto nvidia shield, let me share my tip that i just learned from other youtube video. it is installing apk files from usb drive to android tv in a simple way. btw, es file explorer is no longer available on google play store, for your information. yet, android 8 and 9 do not allow users to sideload from usb drive. anyway, here is how: find and download 'mi box apk installer' from google play store. plug in flash drive that contains all your favorite apk collection to the box. installation can be done in mins.

    Hi do you know how to install unknown apps from other source bec every tie i try to download some apps it will tell me. For your security your device is not allowed unknown apps from this source.

    Why mess around with a separate download on a memory stick? Can't the Nvidia Shield download apk files from the web?

    hi there just bought the nvidia shield tv love kyrpton on it. however when I'm in my file manager and
    I can't see my install highlighted at all when I do an apk from chrome or USB I have to guess what I'm selecting. is this a display setting or? it's really not user friendly the remote that is.
    I also did install speedtest apk and it does some funky thing rotates to portrait and it doesn't respond to anything I push on yes again the remote is there a remote issue with the Nvidia shield?
    sorry of a little confusing I'm flustered as all get out.
    thx in advance

    I'm experiencing the piercing error on all my application trying to side-load and it's not bringing up the side load as an installer either. please help !

    great information , thanks

    Re: HDHomeRun beta APK updates Rather than use a memory card for installation, I downloaded the apk file to the Download folder under SHIELD/Internal. I have a 240GB SSD set up as internal storage. I set up the Shield to allow access to my attached internal and external storage devices. I simply have to download the file using my WIN PC that sees all this under Network using File Explorer. Easy download and then just use ES File Explorer to run.

  • comment-avatar

    does the shield support DRM channels that currently only WMC supports using the HomeRun HD?

    Hi i am from Argentina. I am interesting on a Nvidia Shield TV due to I am an old user of plex, and now plex server can be installed on Nvidia Shield., The question is if it would be possible to sideload an app from regular PlayStore, here in my country we have a local "netflix like" streaming with national film and series productions,

    Lon, I'm very interested in purchasing a Shield TV but I'm curious what you think the chances are that new version will be coming out in the near future. I don't want to take the plunge only to experience Shield TV envy soon after.

    I found a neat program call x-plore from the google store it allows you to copy or view files from any shared location on any android device including the nvidia shield i use that to side load apps/files from my nas drive to my nvidia shield you can also copy files to/from online storage ie google drive. I also use a program call apk extractor to create apks from apps that are all ready installed on my phone then i use side launcher on my nvidia shield to use the apps
