About Sideload Channel / Application Launcher

Version 2 has been released (separate download). Version 2 includes many new and exciting features!


Create your own Android TV channels to launch your installed sideloaded applications or any other installed Android application.

With our channel creator you can access your applications directly from the home screen which means you do not need another launcher to open any of your applications (sideloaded or not).

Your custom channels can hold as many of your applications as you wish and you can customize all aspects of the channel; from it's name to it's logo.

You can design your own tiles from the applications icon/banner, use an icon pack, pick from an included tile, or specify the location of an image online.

With the added ability to add multiple apps to any tile you can organize your applications into the style that suits you.

Sideload Channel does also includes a "launcher mode" so that you can test your configuration or use it as an alternative method to launch your applications.

Requires Android 8.0 Oreo
