- In the left hand pane, click Available Packages. In the right hand pane, under Packages available for download, expand the entry Third party Add-ons. A progress bar may display as the SDK Manager downloads information.
- In the right hand pane, under Third party Add-ons, you should see a list of one or more entries. One of them should start with Google Inc.. Expand this entry. A progress bar may display as the SDK Manager downloads information.
- In the right hand pane, under Google Inc., you should now see one or more entries with a label that starts with Google TV. Expand the entry for the latest version, then at the bottom of the window click Install selected.
- In the next dialog, click Accept All on the right, then click Install. A progress bar appears as the new package is downloaded.
