Samsung Smart Hub down, DNS fix for problems

By Daniel Chubb - Apr 19, 2015

Samsung Smart Hub is down today in both the UK and USA, although there is a DNS fix for these problems being offered by the official Samsung Support channel on Twitter. Reports about this Samsung Smart Hub outage first came to Product Reviews late on April 19 in the UK, or late afternoon across most of the United States.

One of our readers said, “My Samsung Smart TV and Blu-ray player are not that smart anymore, as I cannot use either when Samsung’s network is down”. Another added, “I have contacted support and what annoys me the most is being told to update firmware, or reset everything, but what Samsung need to do is admit it’s down and they’re fixing it”.

Are you having problems with the Samsung Smart Hub and if so, is it totally down for you today? You can see a tweet below that features one user explaining a system outage on Samsung’s end has rendered the Hub useless, but support are asking them to change the DNS server to 4.2.2.1.
