Can I use a Smart TV with Arreya?
We do not recommend or support using the built-in player of a Smart TV to display content with Arreya. While it may be possible on some displays, we have found the overall experience is not what our customers are looking for. We are always testing new devices and displays and will update this document as we find new options. We highly recommend and support using a Chrome device for the best experience with Arreya.

- Updates & Security
- It is rare for Smart TVs to receive updates, and we have seen several models that can no longer run content due to security changes. Smart TVs are typically on a 1yr lifecycle and are often outdated at the time of purchase.
- We have not found any Smart TVs that can run content reliably in a production setting. Smart TVs lack remote management capabilities and will require human intervention.
- Smart TV manufacturers provide little support on using the TVs for this purpose. If you encounter an issue, you are likely on your own for a workaround or fix.
