Will my tv get a firmware update or am I going to have to trade it in for an LG or Sony. The tv isn’t that old and has no issues apart from the lack of support and updates from Samsung! Current version is 1242.
@Redrooster 1242 is the latest firmware which was available in February 2020, so not that long ago . I have a 2017 model and the last update for that was November 2019, The KU is a 2016 model. The newer models tend to be updated a bit more often. Updates are required for fixing bugs and new features but I would not worry yet.
@Redrooster Unfortunately The Apple TV app is not supported on pre 2018 models and the Flash player required for videos is no longer compatible with the Web Browser. In any case the Browser on any Smart TV is more limited than on a computer.
