Smart TV app Downloads

Hi
I have just purchased an Hitachi 43HB6T72U Smart TV and I'm just wondering if it's possible to download additional apps onto it?

Hitachi uses Smartvue operating system which means it's not possible to add additional apps to it as far as I know.

LG uses webos operating system which is open source so means you can add apps to it.
Have a look at this and see if it helps :

No, it uses a Samsung OS called Tizen.
