I have had the Freeview streaming app for ages on my Samsung Q60BA 55TV. Now when the app loads but it's like it's taking to the old On Demand site, which is long gone!! Not the streaming site.

I have tried to reload the app, same issue. Even deleted the app and re-loaded it, the same issue. 

Is anyone else having issues?

I’ve got the same issue as well

I have the same problem.  We have been happily watching the Freeview Streaming TV app since we bought a new TV ten days ago.  On Tuesday 2 May we watched it without problem at 4 pm  Then we tried at about 5 pm and the app took us to a site which said "Our On Demand Service Has Ended.... The same Live TV channels we know and love are still available on Freeview" (phot attached).  We tried deleting and reinstalling the app twice, and then did a full factory reset of the TV without any success.  We rang the Freeview support number (0800 373 384) and spoke to Ollie.  He didn't seem to understand that these are two different services - he initially told us that the streaming app and the On Demand service must be the same thing and they all ended last year.  Rang him back later after doing some research to challenge that and he eventually (after 40 minute conversation) conceded it must be a different service that he had never heard of and he would log it as a "technical issue with Head Office" and we would get a call the next day.  I have not heard back from anyone and the fault is ongoing.  Samsung BU8500 65" (brand new).  Would love some help with this please!

Hi There,

We are aware of any issue affecting Samsung TV's. We put this info on the Network status page yesterday which you can access at the top of this forum.

We are working on getting this issue resolved and will update the network status once this has been fixed.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Jake. Hopefully not too long to fix. 

I did get a different error this morning. Something along the lines "whoops error we are fixing" but now back to the fist error, think its the on demand site. 

Cheers Carl

Yes, working now. Thanks everyone!

I have a series 7 and 8 samsung and both of the apps say they will update to a new version. I have tried manual updating to no avail, one tv is 2018 and the other is 2020.  How can I update it?

Yes, I too am experiencing the exact same symptoms. My TV is the 2018 Samsung UA43NU7100S.

I was one of those that went to a black screen and no further when loading the app. A Firmware update changed the black screen to the same as yours, the old On Demand site.

I have been back and forth with Samsung support. Their latest email says their Engineers say the app is working fine with them. They have requested photos of the Firmware version and the Freeview Streaming App version, which I sent them a couple of hours ago.  I will point the support to this thread.

It has been one month since Samsung remotely accessed my TV.

They said the info would be sent to the Technicians working on the problem

To date, nothing has changed, still can't stream the Freeview channels.

There has been zero communication from Samsung about this problem.

I am emailing them again today.

Is anyone else still not able to stream the Freeview channels?

Still the same here, still says streaming app coming

So is the next bloody christmas

I am still in contact with Samsung about this. They are as slow as a snail but I will keep pecking away at them. When I have a definitive answer from them about this problem, I will post it here.
