Being the holiday season it becomes apparent (especially since my hifi is out of action), that our Samsung TV performs to following roles below.

Maybe a name change is required?
Or is this issue most just use the TV and that's it?

1. TV
2. Streaming hub (my Fire Stick is long gone)
3. Music Audio hub - Spotify and Tidal
4. Music Video hub - Tidal and YouTube Music videos
5. Smartthings hub
6. Ring camera notifications or live view all cameras
7. SHEALTH hub - Lpads apps as guided exercise some link to my watch
8. XBOX Gaming Hub - Add an Xbox controller and subscription
9. Ambient Mode - Art display, really love this
10. Multi View - I can watch TV and my work emails 😎
11. Video calls - Google Meet plus webcam
12. Alexa hub - Home automation and assistant

Services used on Tv's have changed considerably over the years, imagine though most will not use all these functions.  Sure many use the Tv for streaming shows/Music at any rate and the Gaming Hub will be popular with a number.  

Recent shows 24% could not live without their Smart phone  whilst the Tv was 2nd at 12%.  23% though said the Smart Tv was their favourite electrical gadget of all time.  https://www.nationalgrid.com/our-love-electric-research-reveals-uk-obsession-all-things-electric

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
