Info link on UN40B600

by gustavoaat / August 14, 2010 10:02 AM PDT

I bought an UN40B600 and expected it to have the info link option available. I did not understand why it was not avaiable until I saw a small varation in the model number, and found out my TV was made for a region that had this feature disabled. I am really frustrated about this because the commercials from Samsung did not make this clear. Any how, I was wondering if there is a way to enable this feature. Thanks for your time.

gustavoaat,

If you're looking for information outside of the U.S., InfoLink is not available. There's not a way to enable the feature in other regions, since the information for other regions doesn't exist. (Weather, stocks, etc). What region are you inquiring from?

I am from Honduras Central America. This is frustrating, what if I would like to see the weather for Miami, or Stocks from microsoft. My TV should not limit my experience. In another store they are selling the version with info link.

The customer really sshould not have to be looking into what model is in what store. All The commercials and publicity indicate Info Link is available.

By the way, I could not even register it because the page did not not have my model.

Thanks
