How do i delete or block bloatware apps on smart tv ?

 As you can see the above apps won't allow me to delete them.

 

We have strong views about some of these apps and i don't want our family to have to deal with them on our new expensive smart tv.

 

We wish to delete them all. Specifically the pay for view cinema apps.

 

Failing that we need to stop the pay for view cinema app from endlessly  playing when you select live tv.

 

Not everything it shows is to our liking and it's a temptation to make purchases for the family and leads to arguments.  Its eye candy infront of babies.  Seriously wtf samsung.

 

When I choose live tv I don't want it to default to these junk channels.

 

Can anyone help us block the automatic viewing or delete them entirely  ?

 

We certainly didn't pay less for the tv to put up with advertising in our living room which we don't accept on our other devices.

 

Ps here's a link of samsung claiming all apps can be removed:

I am so disappointed to see spyware and bloatware on my new TV, I wish I could return it ASAP and get another brand, unfortunately we have no law in my country that allows me to do that. I can't even find apps that I want on this trash, money wasted.

hi there you are not alone and i dont get why more people are kicking up after paying out thousands!!! BUT there are ways round. Do not Google : 'hack smart tv to remove ads'.  as it will give you ideas on what you can do though I am not in any way endorsing it and be aware you might effect your warranty do dont do this but i cant tell you what to do.

To be honest, that just sounds like a manufacturer's response. The first thing I did was to Google "hack smart tv to remove ads", as it's a) what I want to do and b) warranties are worth about as much as the paper they're written on. My solution: Next time I buy a TV, it WILL NOT BE A SAMSUNG, as they bloat their TVs with crappy apps you cannot delete. I'll vote with my wallet.
