Actually I wanna watch the catch up TV. I think can only use cast then.
If you are more adventurous, then you can extract the latest version of Toggle apk from Android mobile phone using apps like apk extractor. Then transfer the apk to the TV, install the Toggle apk on the TV.

I have got Toggle to work on Mi Box S this way. No way to use a mouse or the remote to click the exit button, but you can return to home.

Disclaim: this is a hack and not guaranteed to work. YMMV on the TCL Android TV. And I am not responsible for any potential problems.

I can use the remote to navigate as well, just not able to exit. Workaround is simple, click the home button to go to home screen.

Good to know that. I tried it before but then Toggle complaint that it was not the latest version, so I extract from my phone. Probably 3rd party apk download site has catched up on the latest version.

Toggle is pretty picky. I am in China now for a short visit and I am not able to use Toggle (and SingTel TV Go) because Toggle blocked VPN SG server IP addresses.

I can use SingTel Cast in China.

yes, when i launched, it did complain it is not compatible. i go ahead and navigate through. seems to be working.

one thing i noticed Toggle apk is much faster in loading than Toggle Red via over the air. it must be the broadband connection eh?

hmm intresting. did you install via usb? after side load it did not appear in app folder. have to run the app in tv set up. honestly it is very inconvenient. i do not use toggle. just playing around to check it out.

Just an update. I pre order at tampines. You must look for the tcl promotor and check with him. He will write down the code and pay at the counter, then proceed to customer service counter to schedule a delivery date.
They are wearing black polo tee, alpha vision logo in front. Hopes it help....
Is the promoter there everyday? or only weekdays?
