How to Change Region on Samsung Smart TV – K series

Smart TVs have different applications available depending on the region where it is sold. If you bought your TV from anywhere outside of US / UK, you can’t just change its region from the menu. That is why some apps may not be available. But there is a way to change the region and to access those apps and we’ll show you how to do this.

Just follow exactly these steps:

  1. Press the “Settings” button from your remote control.

  2. Select “Self Diagnosis” (1) from the “Support” menu.
