How to clear app cache on a smart TV

Clearing your cache on your devices is important to do on a regular basis, especially if you use your apps a lot. Clearing caches can dramatically improve the speed and performance of your device. It’s also important because it can help clear any malware that your device may have picked up during browsing the internet.
