After buying a new television or resetting the television, you cannot watch the programs directly as you need to go through the setup process again. To set up your Samsung Smart TV, you must have a properly working remote, WiFi connection or ethernet, and HDMI cable.
How to Set Up Samsung Smart TV
Step 1: Connecting the cables
 If you have a cable box, plug your HDMI cable into it.
 Check whether you have a power cable.
 Take your power cable and plug one end of your cable into an outlet and the other end into the television.
 If you want a wired network, then get an Ethernet cable.
 The Ethernet cable will have two ends. Connect one end of the cable to your device’s Ethernet port.
 Connect the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port of the Router/Modem.
Step 2: Turn on your Samsung TV
 After all the connections are made, turn on the Samsung TV.
 After switching on your TV, you have to pair up your Samsung TV with the Remote.
 Samsung Smart remote will pair up with your TV as soon as you switch on the TV.
 If your remote doesn’t pair up with your TV, you have to take your Remote and place the focus of your Remote on the Remote Control Sensor at the front of your TV.
 Now, you should press and hold the Back and Play/Pause buttons simultaneously.
Step 3: Select the Preferred Language.
 When you switch on the TV for the first time, you must select the language to set up the TV.
 The list of languages appears on the screen.
 Use your Remote’s up and down keys to select the preferred language for your Samsung TV.
Step 4: Connecting Your TV to the Internet
There are two ways to connect your Samsung TV to the internet. You can either go for a wired connection or a wireless connection.
Set Up a Wired Connection for Your Samsung TV
 Get an Ethernet cable for setting up a wired connection.
 Your Ethernet cable will have two ends. Connect one end of the cable to the Modem or Router’s Ethernet port and the other end to the Device’s Ethernet port.
 After connecting with the ports, you have to select your TV source as Cable Satellite or Antenna.
 Choose the input source for your TV as a cable or satellite box, and then choose the cable provider from the list on the screen.
