I want to buy a Samsung TV for my elderly Aunt for Christmas, however she has no internet nor does she use a smart phone.
Must a Smart Samsung TV require access to the internet during initial set up, i.e. will the set up fail and the TV be unusable if it is not connected to the internet?
I know without internet she will not be able to install any updates, Apps or use Catch up, but will she be able to view Freeview channels via a aerial connection?
I have exactly the same problem. You can complete the set up to a point where you can use the tv and I have configured the satellite tuner to work with Freeview. The problem is that each time you try to perform an activity the screen defaults to tell you that you haven't completed the set up. I cannot find a way to tell the tv that internet is not available. Proving very frustrating. Good luck Nick
