This article should be used as a guide to assist you with installing Signagelive on your Philips D-Line Players. This article is for configuring the newer range of Philips Players (2023). See a full list of supported models here.

If you are configuring a model of Philips Player that precedes 2023, please see this article

  • If you are configuring a 10" Philips Player, please see this article

  • If you are configuring a 2023 model of Philips Player that runs on Android 10 (such as the 2023 Q-Line models), please use the steps in this article to configure your device, as the older APK file will need to be used to configure Signagelive

The instructions will take you through installing and configuring Signagelive from the display's out the box state. If you have any issues during this process, please speak with our Support or Sales team for further advice.

Requirements before you begin:

  • A Philips remote control

  • Connected USB Keyboard (optional)

  • Connection to either a wired or wireless network

  • USB external storage device containing the extracted Signagelive_apk file on its root
