Install the Lumicast player on Samsung Tizen Smart TV

Step-by-step guide for installing the Lumicast player on a Samsung consumer Tizen Smart TV

Pre-note: while it is possible to use consumer Samsung Smart TV devices with Lumicast, if you are still deciding on which device to buy, we would recommend looking into the professional display line for which Lumicast supports a custom app for increased control and performance. You can also always email us at and ask for our advice.


This is the step-by-step guide on setting up your Lumicast digital signage solution with your Samsung Tizen consumer Smart TV displays.

Configure your TV and browser settings

Consumer Samsung Smart TVs are not by default optimally suited for running digital signage players like Lumicast. We need to for example make sure Lumicast always starts when turning on the TV and make sure the browser’s navigation bar gets hidden when Lumicast is playing.

Make sure Lumicast will reopen on startup

On your TV’s remote, click on the settings button. If this does not work, you can open the settings menu by going to the home screen and then clicking on the hamburger icon in the bottom of the menu on the left.

Configure the Internet Browser

Open the Internet Browser app that is installed on your TV by default. Navigate to You will notice that the navigation bar will stay open, which is not very appealing. We want Lumicast to be able to display your content in full screen. In order to do this, we need to adjust some settings in the browser.

Move the cursor to the hamburger icon on the top right of the screen and go to “Settings”:

You can now exit the settings and return to Lumicast. Verify that Lumicast is opened by default by turning off the TV and turning it back on. If Lumicast comes back in full screen, you are all set!
