Hello,
This is most likely becuse it is locked by regeion. Here is how to remove that restriction.

Your TV must be connected to the internet in order for this to work, and be aware that in doing this your TV will reset to factory settings.
Set the TV to the “TV” source, press the source button and use the navigation pad select TV and then click to select.

Samsung TV

Open the Menu by pressing the Menu button.

Samsung TV

Use the navigational pad to select the “system” portion of the main menu, and then click to enter the sub menu.



Setup will be selected by default, click to begin the setup. Note: If setup is greyed out you are not on the TV source, please return to step 1.

Samsung TV

You will begin the on-screen setup that you completed when you first bought the tv. Your previously entered information will be retained.

Samsung TV

Continue through the on-screen setup until you arrive at the Smart Hub Terms & Conditions, Privacy Policy page in the on-screen setup.

Samsung TV

With the Smart Hub Terms & Conditions, Privacy Policy page up on the TV press the following buttons in the sequence indicated.

Samsung TV





If you have the new version of the Samsung remote you will find the Mute button on the side of the remote control.

Please let me know if this helps.

Chris,

A smart TV will have different apps available depending on what market it is sold in. TVS sold outside North America are often unable to switch region to the USA. Some apps are locked down to serial numbers of the TV model and as this limitation is based on hardware it can’t be unlocked.

That said - changing the region to one of the following should provide access to the most popular app on most TVS: USA, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, UK, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

Please be aware that Unlocator does not provide support for region changing. Your TV will be reset to factory standard if you change the region.
Select TV as source
Press Menu on the remote
Select System
Select Setup (If you are unable to enter Setup go to Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset)
Continue the set up – you previous information will be available
Stop the setup when you come to the Smart Hub Terms & Conditions, Privacy Policy page
Press the following sequence on your remote

Select the country you wish to receive apps from. Good choices are USA, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, UK, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
Once you have selected the country let the setup complete
​Important

First step of troubleshooting should always be to restart device(s) and router. Then check your account status in your account home. You should always see 3 green check marks if the device you are using to visit the account home is set up correctly.
