    After the latest firmware update 1154 I now have a google play advert that appears on my smart hub bar in front of all of my apps.
    The advert pops up and changes every so often but its really annoying and I would like to disable it but I cant find a way to do it.
    There are a couple of videos of how to disable ads on american apps where you do not accept the conditions of the app which then stops the app showing an advert but I cannot find anything like that on any of my settings ,so has anybody got any ideas ?
    Thanks in advance.

    No, no idea how to get rid of this abomination on my KS7000 either. I think it's very cheeky, serving me with unwanted advertising on a product I paid full price for, and with no (obvious) way of turning it off.

    I'd have thought for the (presumably) small income from this, they'd have been sensible to not risk pi**ing off their customers. Perhaps they should mention this in the sales blurb, as a feature. Then potential buyers would be fully informed.

    I can feel an email to Samsung coming on, to express my displeasure.
