The Samsung Smart HUB is the control panel for Samsung’s television having all the basic features which can be controlled by the press of a single button. The Smart HUB also has the tendency to malfunction at times which in turn causes issues with Samsung’s services and eventually gives you an error where you are unable to connect to Samsung’s services.
