We have now released software updates to activate the BBC iPlayer app on many of the models of Sharp Smart TV’s.

There are 2 ways to update the TV’s software.

1) Update over the network - If your TV is connected to the Internet, when powering on, it will search online to look for any available software updates. In order to speed up how long it takes to power on the TV from standby, it will not search every time. You are unable to use the TV whilst it performs the upgrade. If you prefer this method or do not have access to a computer to download the update to a USB memory stick, you do not need to do anything. When the TV searches for the update, it will prompt you to install it. Please allow up to 1 hour for the update process to complete. (Depending on the speed of your internet connection).

To upgrade over the network, you will need a USB memory stick connected to the TV. Click here for installation instructions.

2) Update via USB memory stick - This is the fastest way to upgrade the TV as it will take just a couple of minutes to perform the update. You will need a USB memory stick with at least 256MB available space and the Memory stick should be formatted to FAT32 standard. (which is the default setting on most USB sticks) See the download and installation instructions below.

Downloading and installing via USB Memory stick.

Important note. When updating the TV’s software, it may erase any favourites or other settings previously stored. (Including Wifi passwords etc)

1) Connect your USB memory stick to your PC and delete any files that are stored on it.
2) Click your model below to download the file to your FAT32 formatted USB Memory Stick. Do not rename the file & do not save it within a folder on the USB stick.  Do not attempt to install software for a different model on your TV. Please check the label on the back of your TV to ensure you are downloading the correct software.
3) Go to your TV. Disconnect the TV’s power from the mains socket for 10 seconds (until the standby light has extinguished). Do not power the TV back on until completing step 4.
4) Insert the USB memory stick into one of the USB ports on the rear/side of the TV
5) Re-connect the power at the mains socket and press the standby button on the TV or remote control.
6) The TV will come on and a progress bar will be displayed whilst updating. When it has completed, the TV will reset back to factory settings.
7) You will be welcomed with the first time installation screen. If you are not, on the remote control press 'Menu' followed by the number '8' four times. (So Menu, 8-8-8-8)
8) Remove the USB stick.
9) Press OK to retune the TV.
