Samsung HDTV - need help with it

Recommended Posts

Just got this tv -  inherited from my deceased relative.  No manual.

 

We're trying to get some channels ( we have the basic cable package since we don't really watch a lot of tv - just mostly news), but we can't.  We end up with this smart hub option.

What is a smart hub?  I'm afraid to click the okay button (agreeing to it) without knowing exactly what could be entailed with it.   Does it have an extra cost?

 

Thanks.

If your cable service uses an addressable box for selecting channels, you should be able to select the input port for the HDMI or composite cables coming out of the cable box and connected to the TV.   The TV should have at least one HDMI port to choose from.

Smart Hub is Samsung's proprietary streaming app and subscription service built into the TV (e.g. Netflix) without having to use a separate plug in streaming stick.

If the TV has an ATSC tuner (some don't), then you can go into menu setup and scan for all the free local channels in your area if you attach an antenna to the back of the TV.

If you tell us the model number of the TV, we can find you a link to the user manual online.
