I have never been a fan of Smart TVs. Most hardware manufacturers are not very good at software which is why I am partial to dedicated streaming products like Roku, Apple TV, or Amazon Fire TV. I have found them to be more responsive with better interfaces. Now I have another powerful reason.
Samsung is beginning to introduce ads into their Smart TV stream and screen. So now you spend big bucks on a Samsung TV and they want to make more money off you by displaying ads on your TV. My feeling is that I should have a choice of purchasing a full priced ad-free TV or a discounted ad-displaying TV.
