Introducing AdGuard for Android TV

AdGuard for Android TV is here, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce it! It’s a brand new app, fully adapted to your needs when it comes to ad blocking on the big screen. If you're all set to experience the full security and protection that AdGuard offers on your TV and you're wondering how to dive in, you're in the right place. In this post, let's explore the features that make AdGuard for Android TV a great tool for ad blocking on your television.

Features

AdGuard for Android TV

In order to offer comprehensive compatibility with Android TV, we have created a streamlined version of AdGuard for Android. This version incorporates key features designed to boost your browsing experience on your television.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store with the Android TV support:

  • Home screen with statistics. Enjoy a quick overview of the app’s performance.

  • Protection section. The Protection section for TV differs from the mobile version. The features are arranged for convenient remote control management. Additionally, it has fewer customizations — for instance, in Tracking protection, you cannot choose the level of protection. However, this doesn’t make the protection less powerful. AdGuard for Android TV will rid you of ads, tracking, encrypt traffic, and safeguard against phishing and malware on your television.

  • DNS protection. Before AdGuard for Android TV was released, it was impossible to set up Encrypted DNS on a TV. Now, this situation has finally changed! You can secure DNS traffic through encryption, adding an extra layer of security and privacy to your browsing experience. DNS-over-HTTPS is selected by default, but you can add your own server if a different protocol is needed.

  • App management. It allows you to choose in which apps AdGuard will be filtering your traffic — that’s where the ads will be blocked in your TV.

  • Settings. The access and customization of settings were adapted to better suit the needs of our TV users.

Note: You’ll need a license to use AdGuard for Android TV. But you can also try it for free — we offer a 7-day trial period.

How to install

In most cases, stock browsers cannot install a file on your TV, but you can download a browser from the Google Play Store that has this functionality. In our guide, we will consider an example of installation using the TV Bro browser, but there are other options and you can choose the one that better suits your needs. As an alternative, you can use the Downloader app.
