You can get rid of the ads!

 

If you have parent control on your router block the url: "samsungads.com"

Talked with Samsung chat and been informed that it is not disablable since it is a built-in feature. I also found a Korean news article (http://cm.asiae.co.kr/article/2016053100193010653), which basically says that Samsung has been doing this since 2016 for all premium TV lineup. (Yes I am a Korean living in US who is stupid enough to purchase Samsung TV in 2019, three years later than Samsung started this customer-fooling business) They say it is a "business strategy", which would maximize their profit, how proud they are! I purchased two 65" Q7 TVs but I am returning both tomorrow morning as soon as I wake up.

I didn't think you could disable it!  I may have got a bit excited by the chap who said there was a way to do it but my understanding was that it was something that is hard coded.

 

I think Samsung should at least tell their potential customer's that this feature is in the TV.  Surprised a class action law suit hasn't been filed against them.

 

I'm currently looking for a replacement.  The money has been spent so I'll probably end up donating my current TV to charity or something.

I feel the same way!

I'm having the same issue in Canada and will not be buying any more Samsung products unless this is resolved. I did not buy your television so that you could shove ads down my throat every time I turn it on!

Good for you! Had I known they were going to do this, I would never have bought their product in the first place!

 

Apprentice

Amen!
