Samsung Smart TV Is not so Smart
I purchased a Samsung "Smart" 46-inch LED TV more than a year ago and am still waiting for signs of intelligence. The setup required me to share my email address and see it log in every time I turn the TV on. Part of the smartness was supposed to be learning my viewing habits and suggesting shows to watch on a startup page. I saw no signs that it was personalizing my experience and it just left me feeling like Samsung is selling data on consumer viewing habits.
I've reconfigured my startup to avoid the Samsung startup screen, but the system shows no way to unregister the TV and use it as a dumb appliance. That may not be doable, as I do need login-credentials to use streaming services from Amazon, Netflix, and other streaming apps that run on the TV.
