Smart TV - Ads on the Menu Bar

Surely there must be a way to disable this? If I'd known I'd be getting this I'd have brought a different brand. It's annoying me to the point where I'm serious considering getting rid. Sounds dramatic but it feels invasive.

Hi @MrShak1982.

 

Did you manage to get this sorted out or are you still having the issue?

Hi @ChrisM 

 

No such luck, reached out to Samsung UK via twitter and they basically said the functionality is embedded into the TV so no way to disable it. 

 

This will probably be the last Samsung smart TV I purchase tbh if that's their attitude towards customer privacy.

That's not what we like to hear, @MrShak1982. Are you able to send us a photo of your TV with the apps showing?

This one is for Sky Mobile, the last one was for Galaxy S10. Could do without them tbh, just frustrating to see. I don't put my TV on to stare at adverts.
