Last Updated: November 14, 2019
Twitch is the world’s most successful streaming platform. It is the ideal community for gamers. The main reason behind Twitch’s success is the availability of the platform. Anyone can use it. People all around the world can become a part of this community.
It is also available on PlayStation 4, Android, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, iOS, Chromecast, and more. But, when it comes to Smart TVs, that’s not the case. Most companies that produce TVs are focusing on Android TV. But, Samsung is different.
Samsung TVs use Tizen as their operating system. While Samsung TVs used to have Twitch available in their app source, now they don’t. The Twitch app is not available for download on the Samsung Smart TV. That’s exactly why you need to rely on other applications that would solve this problem. Without them, you won’t be able to install Twitch on your Samsung TV.
If you want to know how to do it, you’ve come to the right place. We have prepared a step-by-step guide for you. This guide can help you install Twitch on Samsung F Series.
