    I have a recently bought new Sony Bravia tv model KDL-32WE613. I want to uninstall an app and install another.

    The way I get to the apps is to press the digital button on the remote and move the cursor to the digital input (where Freeview is accessed) and press that..

    I then press Home and a list comes up showing Apps, Programme list, etc, etc. I press apps and they all show up. But there is no Google Play Store selection for me to uninstall/install apps.

    Where am I going wrong?

    Is Internet access set up and working on the TV?

    Are you sure that the TV should have access to the Google app store rather than the manufacturer's own app portal?

    That TV runs on Linux, not Android.

    Likely this, most are Linux. There should still be a store where you can install extra apps though.

    It doesn't have Google Play Store, you have to pay a bit more. I have a Bravia, on mine, like yours you're stuck with what it has at the time of purchase. Either exchange it for another that has play store onboard or you'll need a firestick or similar.
