If this all goes how it goes, then Samsung just basically sold us all a TV that only works for the Free View and has no interest to allow users to save money and want you to buy NEW TVs. If you decide to break the TV or destroy it or simply turn it off, then I completely understand.

What does the future look like for this?

Shall I get a new TV?
If you want to buy a new TV, Can I recommend no MORE Samsung TV, please? I recommend Android TV only with Google play store already installed on it. And even if Samsung make a new tv with Googe play store installed on it, I still don't think we should use Samsung TV in the future. Let's face it, they can't be trusted with such a bad Karma that they brought on themself.
TVs you can try to buy are either the Sony Android TV or Philips new Android TV. We now have new companies making new Android TV with google play store install. Companies like Sharp, TCL and Skyworth. However these are brand new companies, and there are few reviews on it, Check out the Android TV website for more information.
