I use YouTube TV as my television service and would like my Samsung TV to start up on that instead of TVPlus. Is there a way to change the default startup app?

ok!  i actually just spoke with samsung support, first they had me try "mute 7 2 9 exit" on the remote, which made it turn on to the appropriate source but had no sound, then they had me reset the tv, and that seemed to have worked.  so if other people want to try that...

I deleted the stupid app, but when I turn the tv on, it still comes on with that app.  When I go to Home, and then Sources, TV Plus is still showing in the TV block.  Just can’t get it deleted

I have read all of the posts related to this problem and come to the conclusion that there must be no fix or Samsung does't give a rats ass. I have two houses full of Samsung products and have never seen this company totally ignore the community forum. With that, I will ignore Samsung and return this pos TV and buy a competitor brand. That is how aggravating it is to have anyone that uses the TV call me during my travels and make me walk them through the process. My rental home has 5 Tv's and will not have another Samsung product.

Agree. Been trying to fix this for over a year. Always default opens to TVPlus. Can't figure out how to remove the app. FYI The first year we owned the TV it didn't default to TVPlus. Only the last 12 months or so. Maybe after the TV updated itself? Anyway, pretty annoying.

Thanks. So, how do you "Reset" the TV?

That was my experience, too. I deleted the TVPlus app, but it STILL comes on automatically when I start the TV (except, as others have noted, when I've been watching Amazon or Netflix. In those cases, those apps come back on the next time I start the TV.

Hi Andrew @Andrew7  - This does not work. I just bought this Samsung Smart TV, and like everyone else in this thread, I want it to start up on an app (Spectrum TV app), not Samsung TV Plus. Can you tell me if there is a solution to fix this issue? Thanks!
