Hello, I am changing country soon and would like how to change the apps. The instructions for older models don't seem to apply. I currently have German apps but would like UK ones (BBC iPlayer,....)
Solved! Go to Solution.

You must set up a vpn just to get past the license screen as I describe in my post.
Then you need to access the special country choice menu using the key combination that is right for your TV. That will allow you to change the tv to UK and download the BBC itv more4 apps etc.
Follow my instructions as closely as you can in my previous post.

I think this is the key combination for you to get the country selection menu. But I believe that may you need to follow my instructions except use the remote buttons listed here.
If you aren't tech savvy the vpn part might be a bit much for you. So maybe ask a friend.
All this is just friendly suggestion and if you mess up your TV don't hold me responsible. 🙂

Instructions for UE65MU7009 (slim remote)
I Switch on the TV set (on/off button)

IV Scroll down to and select "Start Setup"
V Enter password (usually 0000)
VI Select "Welcome"
VII Scroll down to and select "Germany"
VIII Skip the "Reset" option
IX Connection Guide Select "Next"
X The TV set wants to access the internet (select the appropriate network)
XI Most important screen(!!!) Smart Hub Terms&Conditions, Privacy Options ---> Don't select "OK" but
1 Push the Vol button (central position)
2 Vol Up (pull up)
3 Channel Up (pull up)
4 Push the Vol button (central position)
With the larger remote you must push
>> = FORWARD
<< = REWIND
XII You should then see the hidden screen "Internet Service Location Setup"
XII Scroll Down and select "United Kingdom"
Follow all further steps as indicated on screen.
The UK apps only work in the UK. If you are abroad you need a VPN / Smart DNS option.
Technically, your TV set bought in Germany might be able to receive freeview (DVB-T2) channels in the UK. Access to the EPG or red button services might be limited though.
I've never operated my TV set in the UK.
Hope this helps.

Well, my TV is situated in Germany (as intended) so I didn't come across this problem. This explains why I was able to register the TV and then change the apps to the UK settings. Now my Smart TV perfectly covers exactly what I wish to use it for. I receive the German channels via the internal satellite tuner with all their on demand features whilst access to the British apps is also possible without any problems whatsoever using a Smart DNS.
