I have just bought a TU8507 TV (Dec 2020), There are a number of default apps installed which I cannot uninstall. I finally found the correct place (not as specified in the manual) to manage installed apps but the TV only allows me to delete those apps I've installed since purchase not the default apps. Redundant apps just take up space on the 'home' ribbon along the bottom of the screen. For example, I don't ever use any apple services but I cannot uninstall Apple TV or music, this is ridiculous and frustrating, why would Samsung prevent this?
@Bladerunr: Sorry to hear of your disappointment regarding this matter. As is the case with our mobile devices, our TV's come pre-installed with stock applications that form part of the software, and as a result they cannot be removed from the TV. To delete any installed apps, please head to Apps > Settings (cog symbol) > Navigate to the app you want to delete, and hit Select > Delete. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Hey Gerry I assume you never heard back on this? Im in same boat and deep link hack no longer works. Cant understand how this is allowed to happen by Samsung. Such an awful design fail which would think they would find solution for 😞
