SMART IPTV is back
Smart IPTV is one of the best applications to watch live tv on your SMART TV and can be installed on Android devices or Android TV also SMART IPTV recently over the years became the number one favourite after it emerges and updates to the Firestick and the NVIDIA Shield.
Recently I posted, in fact, it was last month that Samsung for no reason what so ever, had started removing the application and also started initiating force-removal of the SMART IPTV application from the Samsung SMART TV APP Store.
This made a lot of users upset and had sent really bad messages in the Samsung support teams, as there was no reason for this to the app to be removed.
Some even screamed at Samsung that the reason why they bought their Samsung TV is that they wanted to use the SMART feature from the App store and now they removed it, pointing to SMART IPTV as a cord cutter for the home users.
Reason for the application removal
Many sources claimed that Samsung was cleaning house of their application from all possible privacy or piracy or some other unknown reason.
The majority did notice that Samsung was leaning toward working with APPLE components and more Samsung CAST applications, which in turn were and for a lack of better word USELESS APPLICATIONS to use.
Once again and for no reason what so ever, and just one month after the Samsung SMART TV's removed SMART IPTV and the application came back on the Samsung store again.
users can now search SMART IPTV on the SAMSUNG Store and they will be able to find it and use it. Also, I am told by Smart IPTV developers they will also issue new updates soon to the SAMSUNG TV's
Not ALL TV GOT THE Update
Unfortunately not all SAMSUNG SMART TV now have SMART IPTV, as Samsung only allowed SMART IPTV to be added to the new SAMSUNG OS Updates to install SMART IPTV from the Samsung store.
Some TV will still be restricted to install manually by following these steps in this page
WHY did they put it back
It is odd to see the application removed and back in one month, this actually screams out as publicity stunt for Samsung which could be ok, they just might want you to buy new TVs instead of old TVs.
However the worse case scenario could be that they did have every intention to remove the application from the Samsung store but now fear that everyone will not update to the latest software on the Samsung TVs and want us all to update to the latest software and to re-enable auto-update on the software, the scary thought is that they will block us from updating or installing Manually in the future after we all update our TV's.
But, NAAAAA, I am sure a big corporation like Samsung doesn't do something like that for money! What do you think?
