Hi,

I believe that Samsung 2016 model TVs have a K in the model number.

Still doesn't help re the talking facility though.

Hi.

Unfortunately, the RNIB didn't supply me with any which is rather typical despite my pushing the point. I'll do some more digging and see what I can come up with. From what I could gather, samsung's 2016 range of TV's were vastly improved on last year's range. The chap I spoke too was Mohammed in the technology for life department. I may ring him back tomorrow and see if he's got any way of finding out what models they trialed. I'll keep you posted if I get anywhere.

cheers,

Mo.

I would recommend people look at the samsung series 7 tvs as that's the lower end of the premium range. I have yet to get my hands on one.
