Android TV instructions on how to download News 6+

If you’re reading this story, you’re looking for help on how to watch News 6+ with an Android TV device (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered).

First, let’s start with this: the instructions for downloading News 6+ on an Android TV device are very similar to downloading on a Google TV device. Why? Google TV is actually a newer version of Android TV and runs on the same Android TV architecture to connect to the Google Play Store.

Next thing to know: the full version of News 6+ is only available for your HDTV. There’s a version you can watch on a desktop, tablet or smartphone browser (go to, but that website will only show you our live newscasts, special events or a News 6+ playlist of selected stories (available when we’re not producing a live newscast) .

It’s a good start, but to get the full experience of News 6+, you’ll want it on your nice big HDTV!

So how do you get it?

You need two things: an HDTV with the right streaming platform (it can be an Internet-connected Smart TV or an older non-Internet-connected HDTV) and the News 6+ streaming app.

Android TV has been around since June 2014. Its successor is Google TV (launching late 2020) which boasts a sleeker interface and Google’s artificial intelligence to help find programming. The most popular (and well-known) Google TV device is the new Chromecast with Google TV. It is a $30-$40 dongle (sometimes down as low as $20) that allows users both Apple and Android products to stream or “mirror” content to a connected HDTV (Apple TV 4K only works with Apple products). There are also some TVs now available with Google TV already installed from the factory. If you like the Android/Google platform but don’t have it pre-installed on your TV, you need something like a Chromecast or the very popular onn. streaming android tv player from walmart.

ALSO NOTE: Newer Samsung and LG TVs have their own built-in app stores, but News 6+ is not available on those platforms (so you’ll still need one of the Android TV or Google TV devices just mentioned) .

If you already have an HDTV with Android or Google TV installed, to connect to the Internet, you can go to the home page or directly to Settings and then look for a category labeled Network, Internet connection, Connect to the Internet, New Wireless connection or something the like. Follow the instructions to set up or connect to your wired or wireless network, then proceed to the steps outlined below.

If you’re connecting to an Android or Google TV device/dongle, go to Settings and look for either Network or Connection (or again, something similar). From there, follow the instructions to establish an Internet connection.

  • Now, to the News 6+ app:

  • In the TV’s menu (settings menu) you will find the tab labeled “Apps”.

  • Click on “Open Google Play Store”.

  • Search for any of the following terms: WKMG, News 6, News 6 Plus or News 6+ (all should pull up the News 6+ app).

  • Click on the “News 6 +” app and press “Install”.

  • You can access News 6+ via the app page or add it to your favorites so it appears on your TV’s home screen.

That’s it!

Now that you’re on News 6+, you can watch our live and past newscasts, select content from our podcast section and look for specific segments by category (ie News Specials, Different Local Counties, Breaking News, Boomtown, Solutionaries and much, much more ).

As of now, we have over 40 different categories to choose from; a much larger selection than what you can get by just going to the website we mentioned in the previous story.
