Person changing clock settings on a Samsung TV

Not only does your TV let you watch all your favorite shows, it can also tell you the time. When it's connected to the internet, you can make your TV automatically set the time and adjust itself during Daylight Savings Time. Or, you can always set the clock manually if desired.

Note: The provided information refers to Samsung Smart TVs sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for devices sold in other countries. You must set the clock manually if the power cable is disconnected, the TV is not connected to the internet, broadcast signals are not received, or if the Clock Mode is changed from Auto to Manual.

Set the clock automatically

Note: This function only works when the TV is connected to the internet or with an antenna.

If you don't want to bother with setting the time, just make the TV set it for you. 

  1. Using the remote, navigate to and select Settings, select General, and then select System Manager.

  2. Select Time, and then select Clock. Select Clock Mode, and then select Auto to set it automatically.

  3. You can also change the time in Auto mode by selecting Time Offset and choosing your desired time lapse. However, if you enable Auto mode, you may not be able to adjust the Time Zone or DST (Daylight Savings Time).

  4. If you disabled DST when you went through the initial setup on your TV, you will have to turn it on by navigating to Settings, and then selecting General.

  5. Select Reset, and then select On or Auto.
