Setting up a Google Account and enjoying the TV
If you connect the TV to the Internet and setup a Google Account, you can install desired apps on the TV and enjoy Internet videos and use your voice to search for content.
Enjoying the TV without setting up a Google Account
Even if you do not setup a Google Account, you can watch TV broadcasts and/or view content from devices connected to the TV such as a Blu-ray player. If you connect the TV to the Internet, you can also use the Internet streaming services displayed on the Home Menu.
- To setup a Google Account later and enjoy the TV, set up Google TV from the Home Menu or settings menu.
- If you delete the Google Account, the TV will return to the factory default settings.
- Depending on the TV settings, the Home screen will be displayed when the TV is turned on. If you change the following setting, you can change the screen that is displayed when the TV is turned on to the TV broadcast channel or external input such as HDMI that you were watching before turning off the TV.
- Press the (Quick Settings) button on the remote control.
- Select [Power-on behaviour], and then select [Last used input].
