Hi again Joeworcs,
If the UK's TVs act like the US models, then the short answer is no. Sorry, but that's the way the TV works for now. I realize that this may be disappointing, but this is where we're currently at with these devices.
I do not use online providers like Netflix etc also the Family app. Is there anyway to remove them as I don't need them and they take up space for apps I do use.
