Is there a way to reprogram Netfilx/Hulu/Amazon buttons on Samsung's remote??

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hello folks and dear Samsung if you are listening to costomers needs,

 

Just got my new Q80r TV. Really like the remote Samsung developed. Was wondering if there is a way to reassign dedicated Netfilx/Hulu/Amazon buttons to other apps. I couldn't care less about Netfilx, Hulu or Amazon, so I would like to dedicate those very handy buttons to lunch lets say YouTube, Web Browser or any other app. I really hope that those buttons are not "Paid Buttons" by above mentioned vendors and there is a way to change them.

 

Thanks,

Yeah, agree. Flexibility is a virtue, but I gueass this is payed adds by the brand owners, so I see why they are there... It’s business, for sure...

I paid for this product. And i paid Samsung's premium. I agreed to that. But I dont want to see any stinky additional adds on my remote. That Netflix button is actually very annoying. I constantly keep pressing it by accident.

Samsung made a few easy extra bucks from Netflix, Hulu and Amazon by selling those buttons to them. Unfortunatelly, it did not ask what a consumer wants. At least offer another remote for purchase which will allow creating custom buttons based on our own needs (how cool would it be!) or remove those buttons completely. I guess the old remote did not have them at all.

Using a tiny drill create two tiny holes, oversized needle size. One to let air out the other to allow you to inject glue. If you have a hypodermic needle that you can mount on your tube of super glue even better then you need just one hole. Inject the glue easily until it starts coming out on the other end. No more functional button! Samsung dropped the ball, heavily, on their customers, with this. They stopped bloating their phones, now they start on their remotes.... stupid.
