I'm considering a new 2024 S95D TV.  This TV comes with a One Connect box.  I have a question about how long the One Connect cable is that comes with the TV.  I know there is a short one for use when the Connect box is mounted on the stand, plus a longer one.  I can't find any documentation about how long the longer cable is that comes with the TV.  The length may be different from past years so I'm interested in the length for the new models.

There are aftermarket Connect cables online but there are comments about them not being compatible with some TVs.  So I'm hoping that the original cable is long enough.

The 2 in the box, the short one, is about 1' the long one, about 6'. according to people on Best Buys site.

If that's true (not saying that I doubt it, just saying) Samsung has really missed the mark on the usage of their wonderful Connect box.  The cable isn't long enough to really make it useful as a remote location and avoid bringing all of the cables to the TV.

Man, I tried to search the Samsung site for Connect cables and it didn't know what I was talking about.  Plus, if A maz on is any indication they are pretty expensive for something that should come from the manufacturer is a usable length.

Thanks for your info.

Upon further investigation, there isn't a longer cable for the Oled TV'S.

You need to call Samsung directly to confirm before you purchase if you have to have a longer cable.

I called SS sales, support, and parts.  Sales thought it was compatible but referred me to support.  Support said it's not compatible with newer TVs.  Parts said they have nothing to use to lengthen or that is longer than the in-box One Connect cable.

I just picked up my new S95D.  The Connect cable is 8 ft long.  Still not long enough to wall mount the TV and have the Connect box off to a side cabinet unless it is directly below the TV.  That's a shame.
