Surely there must be a way to disable this? If I'd known I'd be getting this I'd have brought a different brand. It's annoying me to the point where I'm serious considering getting rid. Sounds dramatic but it feels invasive.
No such luck, reached out to Samsung UK via twitter and they basically said the functionality is embedded into the TV so no way to disable it.
This will probably be the last Samsung smart TV I purchase tbh if that's their attitude towards customer privacy.
I'm having the same issue in Canada and will not be buying any more Samsung products unless this is resolved. I did not buy your television so that you could shove ads down my throat every time I turn it on!
Personally I found that putting this ad blocking DNS server address in the TV block all the ads in the TV completely just going to your network settings and adjust your DNS settings and put in this IP address like the previous post mentioned.
Put that DNS address in your TV and reboot your TV and the ads will be gone when a couple minutes they will be gone. Works fine for me.
Yeh, it's a pretty terrible thing for Samsung to do, spend a boatload on the new Frame and Adverts? What a stupid thing to do, there are ways to stop them using DNS, but why should I have to? Last time I buy a Samsung product.
Yeah same *****ty problem in Denmark. Last Samsung product I ever bought if that's a thing now... I payed for my TV fair and square... We get attacked from companies no matter where the ***** we are or what we do. If you wanna implement ads on your tv software then hand out your TVs for free and let them sponsor our TV's.. If I payed for it... Then REMOVE THAT *****!!!! PERIOD!!!!!
It is indeed frustrating.. And as you can see, I don't think you're being anywhere near what I think is dramatic. That would be like taking your TV outside, set it on fire with live recordings and then post it on their facebook 😄 This is just telling them to stop invading our privacy when we actually payed for their product!
