The only thing that has fully solved the problem for me was what I (detectiveholmes) wrote on my post about 4 or 5 comments above this one. Follow the instructions on that post to delete every single age category from every single country on the broadcast setting and then the trashy TV can't autoplay because you have to type in a code to watch trashy TV. It does not, however, stop you from watching whatever rated movie you want on your apps such as Netflix and Google play 😊
I did a CHAT with Samsung. They had me unplug the TV from wall for a minute. Plugged it back in and it stopped starting with TV plus. I was also able to remove the icon.
It still will not start on last app as setup but I'm happy not to have the TV plus auto turn on.
Has anyone complained to Ofcom yet, this surely breaches the rules set out by them:
-as the content thats broadcast on the tvplus channels surely breaches the watershed rules?
- Is forcing users to view it without choice(whenever i start my tv there it is, regardless of the channel i have left it on when i last turned it off)
Also i need to ask samsung(if they will ever answer) how long before you decide that my legally bought tv becomes a censored piece of tech which you decide my content, not the consumer? At least with my really old TV if i didnt want a channel i just did not need to tune into it(analogue was bliss sometimes)
