How to download and install Wink

To do this, you need to follow simple instructions. Let’s analyze it in more detail for each device.

The service “View Control” does not work

On some “old” TVs, the service stops working due to the lack of updates from the manufacturer. We wrote at the beginning that Samsung is extremely reluctant to support its older models. Remember what we wrote at the beginning of the article about updates? This is it. What else can be:

  • Re-authorize via Multiscreen (section “Mine” in the application). To prevent the binding from flying off, when you finish viewing, go to the main menu of the application. It is also recommended to turn off the TV from the remote control.
  • If you live, then these are regional restrictions of copyright holders specifically for viewing from the application. Here Rostelecom really has nothing to do with it. you will have to buy a set-top box if this service is so necessary.

Image freezes (“An error occurred while loading data”)

There is a constant freeze of the picture, which then hangs down automatically, or rewinds back (repeats) or shows segments. First, check the speed by opening the page on the TV. It will show your current speed. it must be at least 25 Mbps. If the speed matches, then update the application. This situation is observed on versions 5.21.4 and 5.25.0.


Picture and sound out of sync

After updating the application to version 5.21.4, many Wink users started having problems with sound and images. the picture freezes, but the sound continues to play or rewinds, and no buffering is observed. The problem with such jumps and fills lies in the incorrect processing of the video content stream. As far as we know, the problem should be fixed soon. Stay tuned for app updates

After loading Wink, there is an immediate black screen

First of all, check your internet connection speed. The speed of stable operation recommended by the developers is 25 Mbps. If the problem persists, then try the following life hack: when a black screen appears, press the “Back” button (in some models, “Return”). the main Wink window should open. Most likely, this bug will be fixed in the next revisions of the application, but for now it can be used as a temporary solution

Error “Player error not supported format

This error has another version. player error not supported operation. It occurs when watching 4K content or even on HD channels, mainly on TV models of 2020 (they have the letter T or TU). Wait for the application update. the problem is still being solved by the developers

Is it possible to install Wink without going through SmartHub?

If for some reason you do not have access to the SmartHub service, you will not be able to install the application. To install an application manually through Tizen Studio, you need the files of the application itself, but there are none for the Tizen platform. Installation files are only available for the AndroidTV platform. They can be asked to send via technical support.


Wink‘s technical support responds quickly enough to all kinds of hardware-related incidents. But not everything is so simple. often you have to work with third-party vendors who are not very willing to drop everything and start helping the developers of some kind of applications for their TVs. The main article about Wink is here. There you can also see the list of supported devices (including those on the Tizen platform). It should be borne in mind that Samsung releases software updates only for TVs no older than three years, and this is a wake-up call for owners of old TVs.

The problem may be not only in the application, but also in the unstable Internet connection or in the hardware of the TV. And the latter is not uncommon. Fortunately, qualified service centers can be easily distinguished from unsightly fly-by-night businesses. Good SCs always have almost all spare parts in stock and their specialists can and are able to carry out complex technical repairs of the matrix, eliminate problems with sound, color rendition and TV power.
