ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Just got this message on my tv. I BOUGHT this t.v. to be able to stream Neflix and HuluPlus on my t.v.!
This feels like a bait-and-switch. I smell a class-action lawsuit.

Samsung is always seeking new ways to improve the Smart TV ecosystem and provide the best experience to consumers and developers alike. With this in mind, we’ve decided to modify our paid-app service for Samsung Smart TVs and have begun developing a new business model solely around free Smart TV app offerings.
Beginning March, 26, 2014, Samsung Paid Applications will no longer be available via Samsung Apps. Please note this does not apply to subscription services (such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Pandora, Amazon), only applications you must pay to download.
We believe this next step will benefit not only our customers but the Smart TV ecosystem as a whole and we’re excited to share more details once they’re available.
