I just got a QE65Q9FN tv. Really enjoying it, but was under the impression that the 2018 tvs had bixby as the search. However there is no bixby to be found, and just the standard voice assistant. Looking at the website again now I can see it on the US tvs but not the UK ones. Are we not getting it then? On the promo videos I saw beforehand its was all about bixby.

 

Cant seem to find much on the internet about it. Any ideas?

Whilst Bixby was heavily promoted for 2018 sets , on closer inspection initially the US.  Cannot see anything specific about Uk  situiation but should be available at some point.  There was a delay before it was integrated into mobile devices  in UK https://www.v3.co.uk/v3-uk/news/3016045/samsung-rolls-out-bixby-voice-assistant-to-uk-galaxy-s8-and-...    A few more articles here https://www.zdnet.com/article/will-bixby-consolidate-samsungs-smart-tv-and-iot-experience/    https://www.cnet.com/news/here-comes-bixby-samsung-plans-to-pack-voice-controls-into-every-device-it...

I was going to post a topic about the same thing.
Why are we not getting it?
It is irritating to know that some of the tv's have this feature, while others don't.
My tv is a QE65Q6FN, but it is not the model that is the problem. I also watched the site and Bixby is advertised on my model as well.

Hello, this is my first post!

 

I’ve just got the new 2019 Samsung tv QE49Q70R, plus a  HW-N850 sound bar and very nice they are too.

 

But I found Bixby very irritating, it seemed to have a mind of it’s own, interrupting programmes with text and audio messages. And when I tried to use it, it didn’t understand my commands.

With the help of Samsung’s overseas support, I’ve been able to turn the ***** thing off!

 

What’s the best way  do people think is to learn how to use all the features of the system?

And are there any calibration devices or software anyone would recommend?
