Get rid of GBNews on the ads

How can I get rid of GB news being advertised popping up on the menu?

I don’t particularly mind adverts being there - even though it’s a bit cheeky of Samsung to sell you an expensive item, and then force adverts into something you own - I can ignore them.

But I draw the line at GB News being one of the suggested channels - that pushes antivax conspiracy, is basically a place of anti immigration, whiney snowflake ‘make it all about the culture war’ station. Samsung should do better than promote this garbage.

In the TV Home screen, there is an 'On Now' feature that shows channels that are currently being broadcast. The TV curates this automatically based on the kinds of content you may watch. For example, if you watch the News, it's likely other News channels will appear. To delete GB News from the TV, so it won't appear as a recommendation, follow these steps:

Press the CH List button (standard remote) or on the Smart remote, press and hold the CH UP/DN buttons for a few seconds > The Channel List feature will appear > Choose Edit Channels (at the bottom of the screen) > In the Edit Channels page, choose 'Samsung TV Plus' under 'Channels' > Scroll down to find GB News (it's channel 4326) > Select the channel > Select 'Delete' and press 'Ok'.

This will prevent GB News from appearing on the Home screen.

I’d say the channel that whinges about every little thing meets the criteria best - or are you also scared of things that you don’t understand?

If seeing GB News on your TV upsets you, I'd suggest you hide under your blanket and avoid going outside too.

Will that also block the likes of the BBC woke infested anti uk channel?

If vaccines, immigrants, LGBT people, or anything outside your comfort zone upsets you, then I’d suggest you’re a bigot

Define what you mean as woke - because I’d guess you either don’t know what you mean or you are too scared to say it out loud

I'm not sure what you mean. It's possible all that 5g radiation is affecting you. That or the 25th vaccine you've taken...
