Downloader App Not In Google Play – How to Install on Android TV

downloader app not in google play store

Downloader app is not in Google Play store anymore due to a ridiculous copyright claim filed by an outfit out of Israel.

Yes TV has claimed that Downloader infringes their copyright due to the fact that the browser within can load infringing content.  This claim would make all Internet browsers illegal such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Brave, Edge, etc.

Here’s another example of a woke tech company bending to the pressures of ridiculous claims lodged by a company in an outside country.  Unbelievable!

The Downloader App is used by millions of cord-cutters daily to sideload apps and APKs that are not available in the Google Play Store.

When selecting the Downloader App via Google search, you are met with the following screen.

If you do a search for Downloader within the Google Play Store itself, you will notice it is no longer available.

It’s important to point out that the Downloader app was never available in Google Play for phones, tablets, and generic Android Boxes.  But, it was available for systems running Android TV / Google TV.

Downloader Developer Elias from AFTVNews  Comments

As soon as I saw that Downloader wasn’t available in the Google Play Store on Android TV devices yesterday, I immediately put a video on YouTube showing an alternative way to install it.

Elias, the developer of Downloader app provided a comment below the video.

Thanks for the attention Troy. My Downloader app was suspended because of a DMCA takedown request from Israel’s Yes TV which absurdly claims that because the app’s web browser can load a specific website that infringes their copyright, then my app itself also infringes its copyright. I appealed Google Play but got rejected within minutes. I’d really appreciate it if people can tweet and reach out to Google in any way to get the app reinstated!

Elias has taken to Twitter to dispute this takedown by calling out @GooglePlay for this unfair removal.  We ask that all TROYPOINT fans go to the following tweet and reply with your objections to this injustice.

In the meantime, we can still sideload the Downloader Application on any Android TV or Google TV device by using JioPages.

JioPages is the Best Browser for Android/Google TV for many reasons including its ability to sideload APKs.
