How to download international apps for Android and Android TV devices

Some apps may not be available to some users due to Google restricting the available apps on the Google Play Store according to the country the account is registered in. 

Let's say you're in the UK but you want to be able to download and install the Hulu or HBO Max app which are only available in the US. You have 2 options in this case:

  1. Get yourself an American Google Play account and login to to the Google Play Store with it to see all of the US apps
  2. Side-load the apps to your Android device outside of the Google Play Store.
