There're some issues affecting the Freeview On Demand smart TV app on some Samsung TVs, preventing the app and some shows from loading correctly.
The problem appears to be most prevalent on older Samsung TVs.
A hotfix is being developed by the platform development team to address this.
More updates to follow.
i am just discovering my samsung won't turn on after not using it since last October. Having read the above post (i realise it is old now!) this morning, wondering if there is something i could try. have disconnected everything and tried to start again but to no avail. Any help appreciated.
This is very unusual, have you switched off the power supply, wait 20 minutes and turn it on again?
thanks, i have tried everything and of course in our lockdown, its when i have time to watch tv. just can't believe that the tv is not working. when i read the thread on the changes with freeview and the affect on old samsungs i thought perhaps i had a chance. back to the laptop for me i guess.! cheers
I suggest give Samsung a chat / call using the services on their page: https://www.samsung.com/nz/info/contactus/
They may be able to assist with this as this will have nothing to do with Freeview.
thanks Josh. I have already exhausted the bot at Samsung! your help has been appreciated. will definitely let you know when i figure this conundrum out. cheers hilary
No worries Hilary,
Take care, stay safe
