Installing Android TV apps on a tablet

I have a Nvidia Shield Tablet running Android 5.0. This tablet has HDMI so I think it would be useful if I could run some of the apps designed for Android TV on it.

I was able to extract the APKs from the Nexus Player factory image. LeanbackLauncher, LeanbackKeyboard, etc. None will install properly on the tablet though. Install fails without any details. Eventually it would also be nice to get the Netflix TV app (com.netflix.ninja) too.

Has anybody had success doing this, or ideas on how to accomplish it?
