Get an Android TV box and a wireless mouse.

I prefer the MXQ Android boxes and a LogiTech M570 trackball.

It's ez pz.

Since you obviously have a TV that is capable of connectting to the internet an alternative approach would be to dig out the manual for the TV and see if you can add any apps to it. If you don't have the manual you should be able to download it from the manufacturer's web-site.


If you can do this is would be simpler and cheaper than investing in an android box.

Very true.


But I got my last Android TV box about 2 weeks ago for $28.95 off eBay.

I set it up and gave to a retired couple that I help out from time to time.
