    SAMSUNG SMART TV UPDATES

    PLEASE READ BELOW IF YOU USE SMART IPTV APP ON YOUR SAMSUNG SMART TV

    Samsung have removed smart iptv app from 2018 models

    They are removing apps from older tvs once the new update comes in users are already losing the app u can avoid this from happening by not updating your tv when the latest update comes out so far this has only been with samsung and its definitely on the 2018 model

    If you do accidentally remove the app or update the tv settings you could possibly lose the app for good.

    This is only on SAMSUNG for now...

    its just the siptv app for the time being, but I will expect it will be all of them soon enough,
    wont be long before other tv makers follow suit,

    Well could be couple of reasons, 1st one because of what it does,
    2nd reason will because of a issue with the firmware,

    if its a 2018 model then u cant get siptv on it, if its a older model then you can, until samsung roll out a update for all other TV's.
    which could be tomorrow or in a few months.
