Hello and thank you for your question, I look forward to assisting you today. Do you have your TV connected to the internet?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Still with me?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Connected to internet
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Okay good. How do you have the TV connected to your network?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Cable connection
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Okay, but having it connected just to cable will probably not get you connected to the internet. The TV needs to connect to your home network either by WiFi (wireless connection) or by using a network cable connected directly to your router. Do you know if the TV is connected either way?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
How about this. Do you have access to any of the streaming services like Netflix?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have netflex
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Okay then try this. Press the MENU button, on your remote, and navigate & select Application by using the arrow button. Then navigate to the option Internet Browser and let me know when you get there.

Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Check under the Home option and see if it is under that.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I pressed "home"
Then "Internet content"
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Okay, now Press the OPTION button on your TV’s remote control and from the Option menu, see if there is an Enter URL/URL ENTRY option.
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Anything?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No "URL/URL" in option on remote
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
The URL option is not on the remote, you are looking for it from the Internet Content menu by pressing option on the remote.
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
My apologies, but I am unable to contact you by phone at this time.
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.

Okay do you see anything called the Opera TV store?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have "OPERA TV STORE"
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Her is what I have found out. Your TV does not come with a pre installed browser. You will need to go to the TV store and download it to the TV then once it is installed you should be able to use it like the browser on your computer.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Where is the TV STORE?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
I thought you said you had it?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Did you find it?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have Opera TV StoreHow do I down load browser?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Go to the store and browse the content until you find a browser you want to use, like Firefox for instance. Once you highlight that, using the remote control, press the enter button on the remote and follow the on screen instructions.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Were do u find browser to down load?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Actually you don't download it, you use the browser from the Opera TV Store to browse the internet.
