Good question: why did you pay 2000 for a TV without checking if it did what you want? Smart TV's are well known for being not so very smart and very powerful, although they excel in picture quality.

Anyway, Flash is on its way out. So it's quite understandable the latest TV's don't support it. The solution: find a PC or laptop that does play Flash and use your TV as a monitor only. Or play it on that PC or laptop, of course.

https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/ says it will stop distributing Flash player (they also call it "to end-of-life Flash") at the end of 2020, that is in 2 years now.

And the story gets worse.

The TV flash player really died years ago yet web pages moved in mass away from Flash years ago.

On top of that you see "Update Your Flash Player" on some sites even when there is NO WAY TO UPDATE. Only the TV maker can update it and since Adobe is exiting this old system, you will find yourself is a circle of hell.

If you want to use the Web on a big TV I have a cheap exit for you. Go get an Amazon Fire TV stick or box and install Opera or Chrome (check that out) and you get a real browser for 20 to 30 dollars.
