They had the same as Curry's but I think they took it down quick. I don't know if anyone here copied it. 

But if the blurays were advertised with it at the retailers and you have asked for them and not received, then I also believe that is miss selling under the regs. So at least qoute the regs to get them. Try searching the web for anything with RicherSounds, and also ask on AV forums. I will try to look as a well, and you could also ask Richer Sounds for the advertising material they had for you model TV.

I mentioned that the Japanese and Canadians were more trust worthy, as they have come up with the updates, with even their customer's having to ask.

That one's still there: https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/TV-Audio-Video/Blue-Planet-2-HLG-No-Samsung/m-p/381696#M7430 (posted at 02:23 PM according to my settings) and currently unaltered. I'd strongly advise steering clear of ethnic stuff though. I appreciate the frustration, but I'd hope that you guys are better than that. LG is South Korean too BTW.

It's a bit scary when I retailer says they can withdraw support at anytime. Even Curry's and JL do not say that. I would take my money else where, because they are saying they will not support your TV full stop. Not good.

even if we suggest something like this as a bypass - samung or the retailers will certainly accept this as "full and final settlement"

Yes because it would save a fortune. For a raku costs they would still have profited out of the deal.

Appreciation    what your saying about face book and co, but I think it's good evidence that you have tried all avenues. Also probably the  more people who see this issue the more who may also take action. 

Some should get a full refund, but I think everyone just wants what Samsung promised, that's all. For such a large company to renege like they have done is very odd. That's why even if they brought out the best TV ever I would think twice (if at all). What I have learnt is the difference between these expensive premium TV's and cheaper one's is not a lot for normal day to day viewing. You may see the difference when watching UHD bluray disks on a 65 inch tele when the sets are next to each other. I saw a 55 LG SUHD LCD at Curry's last week with all versions HDR, picture looked  good, perfect for Netflix and the price,  £895.00. So I am asking why a was deceived into paying over £2990, for a TV that will not be updated. I will not do it again.

People can make thier own decisions, but ,my impression is as follows

1. Samsung cut corners and thier quality control is very poor

2. Samsung support team are like insurance agents who always try to deny the fault

3. Samsung use decietful practices to sell thier subpar and  not fit for purpose goods, promise features they never plan on delivering

 

Conclusion: Never buy any Samsung products and never let anyone make this mistake!

 

I couldn't have put it better.

I was going to mention that as whilst understand reasons why  some may be  irate, felt a few  comments were inappropriate.  Obviously not everyone aware of the origins of LG.
