Better disconnect your Samsung TVs from the internet, as they can remotely disable them for whatever reason they see fit

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/25

Oh nice: [Wayback/Archive.is] Samsung can remotely disable their TVs worldwide using TV Block.

Disconnected, any apps needing internet connection won’t run.

Those apps usually work more reliable on an Apple TV or similar device that plays over HDMI anyway.

In addition, it will also prevent Samsung to show adds on your TV.

So disconnecting it is a win-win-win situation.

 

Note: you could already block apps and adds, see:

Maybe those blocks also block blocking.
