The delete option for default apps is disabled by default. However, there is still a way to manage and delete apps on Samsung Smart TVs. You can remove that app from Smart Hub. Just highlight that app, Netflix, for example. Then press the bottom portion of the navigation ring and select 'Remove'.

uninstall default apps, this worked.

 

EDIT: Installed unofficial "Twitch" apps on the TV, once installed you should be able to follow the instructions in the video.

Thanks a lot for the video. Got into developer mode but could not work exactly what to do after "type in some randomness". I tried a few things but the delete remained greyed out.

Any chance someone could spell it out?

Hi Guys!

 

You need to make sure that the software of your TV is updated. Compare it from the Samsung website. 

If it is, you need to carry out a memory reset.

The trick worked for me because I had previously installed an unofficial "Twitch" apps on the TV, I tried on another TV without modifying this tutorial and it did not work, it is necessary to install whether or not this apps following the instructions, and at the end of the installation When I will have the "Twitch" apps on the tv you have to restart the tv by pressing and holding the off button until the tv turns on again, from there you should be able to uninstall the apps from the tv system.

If you have problems let me know and I will explain with images how you have to do it.

 

Sorry for translate.google.

Thanks for sharing the video. I did exactly what was shown on it but the Delete option still stays greyed out. My TV has the latest firmware.

Hi,

 

Yes, it is possible to uninstall the default apps on Samsung Smart TV.  I discovered a hack and it works flawlessly. :smiling-face:

Really? In the acticle says:
"You won’t be able to delete apps that come pre-installed on your Samsung Smart TV. The delete option for such apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc. is greyed out or disabled by default."

Can you confirm that this is wrong and you actually managed to delete the default apps?
