I would return the TV, you aren't getting iPlayer 4K UHD either on 2016 models, essentially Samsung have stopped supporting them, they are now considered obsolete, which is why you aren't seeing this supported either.
The chances of all that working as advertised was going to be slim anyway I should think from Samsung. It wouldn't be time a saver, it would just see you spending hours resetting the TV, on your knees behind the TV unplugging and plugging back in tongles, waiting for firmware updates to arrive that never do, and one way conversations with their support.
So the USA has the app but us poor people in the EU can't! yes the smartthings app is on
samsungs own TV app store site in the USA.
So what about smartthing extend? when are we going to get that?
I bought this TV for this reason(smartthings extend)
This was(still is) on show on J Lewis site
"Create the perfect entertainment experience by turning your TV into the brain of your smart home with Samsung SmartThings Extend"
It's also on on all the retailers sites that sell the TV.(I have saved the webpages off just in case)
If we are not going to get it then this is a miss sold product and I want a full refund.
I have talked to CAB(citizens advice bureau) and my local MP and MEP and they back up what I say.
If any other Samsung KS tv users are looking in, maybe you would like a full refund?
I hope this doen't take another two weeks.
I don't know if you have seen the KS owners refund thread and
is all about Samsung and retailers mis selling and how to get a refund
I don't know if you have seen this email from Samsung UK Head Office

That is confirmation that there will be no Smart USB Dongle for any of the KS TV's. If you saw on you retailers web site a reference to the dongle and it influenced your decision to by then you could claim a refund for misrepresentation under the Oct 2015 Consumer Regs. Look on this thread for more details,
According to this article , Samsung decided not to release The Smart Things Dongle in Europe due to security issues. https://wwhttps://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1512472675w.flatpanelshd.com/n...
