samsung smart tv advert

Samsung has updated its smart TV user interface, adding adverts to the mix.

The ads aren't too obtrusive until the user highlights them. Then they can take up almost the whole screen.

The only way to avoid the adverts is to disconnect the set from the internet. Which misses the point of it being a smart TV.

According to Samsung, users can opt out of the adverts through an option in the settings menu. But some users say they're still seeing them even after doing so.

One user wrote on Reddit: "I think there's still an issue here, given that reportedly this particular model in this thread has a 'disable' feature that still doesn't fully disable the ads. So if you're going to give a TV credit for having an opt-out, make sure it actually opts you out of everything."

Have you seen unwanted adverts invade your smart TV's user interface? What should Samsung do about it? Let us know in the comments.
