I own 3 Samsung Smart TVs - two 40 inch and one 55 inch. There are CONSTANTLY updating, sometimes twice in one day, and when it does, there is nothing that can be done except watch OTA TV. It is CRAZY that it has to update so much. I did not buy these expensive TVs only to be told I cannot use them - updating. My Vizio NEVER gives me any issues wih constant update notices - I turn it on and it just works, taking me to Amazon and Netflixs, the two places we do go to what TV. How do I turn off updating so I actually use the TV when I want?
Yeah join the Samstung experience... pretentious obnoxious uncontrolled updates. Just look at how terrible this site itself is. I feel like it’s 1985 and I’m starting up a Commodore 64. No, the update switch doesn’t work, nothing works. Kids melting down and need to watch a show? FU it’s updating. Late night wanna watch Netflix? FU it’s updating. Well Samsung you’ve driven me so insane I swear I’ll never ever buy another Samsung product ever again. Here’s a pic of my most popular screen image - and it usually stays this way for 20 minutes. FU Samsung!!!
I am a UK resident and I am having the same constant updating. I have tried to find a way to turn off auto updates and turn telly off. Sometimes going through menu>smart features>open smart hub works.
Really need a fix. I only watch online TV, so as you can imagine its annoying to say the least.
I also bought a new TV: a different brand for the first time (Sony OLED) after buying 4 Samsung TVs previously.
I disabled the network on the old Samsung's and use Apple TV and Roku for their smart features until they die
