Is it possible to use a smart TV with satellite?
Smart TV services and features have no impact on a TV’s ability to receive local broadcasts. You will continue to receive the same stations if you have cable or satellite service. If you don’t have any of those services, you’ll need an internet connection (DSL or cable) to access the smart services, as well as one of our finest TV antennas to receive free local broadcasts. Most television stations, at least for the time being, have not followed the lead of radio stations in streaming their live broadcasts online.

1. Press the “Menu” button on your remote.
2. Select “Channel” or “Broadcasting” from the menu. (Depending on your model, the precise menu name will vary.)
3. Select “Auto Program” from the drop-down menu.

Most Samsung televisions should work with the steps below, but there may be slight differences depending on the device.
1. On your remote, press the “Menu” button. (On many remote controls, the word “Menu” appears with three boxes beneath it.)
2. From the menu, select “Channel.” (In some newer models, “Broadcasting” may be used instead.)
3. Select “Auto Program” or “Auto Tune” from the drop-down menu.
4. Your television may prompt you to program “Air” or “Cable.” If this is the case, choose “Air.” This instructs your television to search for antenna channels.
More instructions for your specific TV model can be found on Samsung’s support page.
