Yes I Just found this out myself and am very disgusted! The past year 5 apps or so have been deleted from my smart hub! My TV is the 55 inch 8000d and was top of the line about 5 years ago and it being 5 years old is he no reason to punish me. If I knew this was gonna happen I would of just bought a Sony! Keep up the bad work Samsung I'm not even going to get in to my s7 issues! SMH
It also happened to my Sony blueray player.
No more expensive not so smart gadgets for me. From now on its as cheap as possible and stick on a fire stick or similar. At least if that gets dated you can change it for a few quid.
Samsung can and should provide a YouTube app for all TVs. If Samsung doesn't have the technical expertise to create and app, then pay YouTube to do it. This is not difficult, it only requires some money. When will the new app be available?
