Samsung has recently removed the SMART IPTV and several apps from the Samsung Stores. There was actually no official announcement as to why this is done however further investigation I found out that Samsung is planning to install more Apple TV Casting and Apple TV services and although it is unclear as this is the reason why they removed SMART IPTV from their store, Samsung TV now simple no more SMART then just a TV with Youtube, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
This is the video guide I made last night for all users as soon as I found out about this News.

Users who bought SAMSUNG TVs for their SMART IPTV application are very disappointed, as after purchasing the TV they always rush to obtaining an IPTV Service and watch live tv from the web using IPTV with the SMART IPTV Application.
Many users already have purchased IPTV Services and installed it in the SMART IPTV, now face the fact that SMART IPTV will most likely be removed by the next AUTO update or TV Rest.
Users with SMART IPTV already installed in their TV are advised not REST their SAMSUNG TV and to Switch AUTO UPDATE OFF. This will result in the SMART IPTV uninstalled and will be needing to install it manually.
