How do I update the software on my Samsung Smart TV?

If you are having trouble with your Samsung Smart TV, you should always check to see if there are any software updates available as these may contain a fix for your problem.

The easiest way to update your software is directly through the settings menu on your TV. If your TV isn't connected to the internet or your internet connection isn't stable, you can also update using a USB stick.
