Unsolicited Ad on smart TV

Dear Samsung.

 

why are you showing Ad’s on my Smart TV without my consent? I didn’t agree to this in the privacy settings but I keep on getting this Ad’s! Why?

Stop it! I need it stopped NOW! It’s getting very aggressive every month. Not even Microsoft windows does this without opening a web page! You are not allowed to do this. I can use the TV however I like, stop throwing AD’s on my face every time I navigate on the home bar! This includes any Samsung related products.

 

I’ve seen similar post elsewhere, and you didn’t offer a solution! I will not stop here. I need a specialist to contact me and remove this AD’s. It’s illegal and it’s pervasive, ugly and annoying.

Thanks but I’ve already done that - which is why I’m so angry.  I’ve already paid them for the TV - why are they invading my privacy - find another way to make money. As I said, I will not stop here, I will take them to court if I have to. They must respect the local law.

Take a legal action! If you can email your local Samsung SEO and send them a warning. There is no mention of advertising on any of their brand new boxes

I agree but it’s easy to change just go to home icon on your bottom toolbar main menu then privacy choices then terms & conditions privacy policy and untick interest based advertisements and save. When you go back to main menu adds will be gone from bottom toolbar

I did exactly what you recommended. It made no difference. The advert is still there. Very annoying.
