Samsung jubilantly announced at this year's CES as 2015 being "just the beginning of an incredible smart TV future." And they were right. So far, it's incredibly bad.
Fast forward about four days later, and Samsung has yet another problem. Third party apps on Samsung TVs, including Plex and Foxtel, began pushing unwanted Pepsi ads on Australian viewers' own, locally stored content. Foxtel quickly responded saying the problem was on Samsung's end and that the ads definitely shouldn't be there. Samsung Australia eventually responded that the problem had been rectified and that the company had no plans for these kinds of ads "in the near future." Comforting.
