Here you can find SmartStream setup information for your chosen device and also which services you can access whilst using SmartStream.

You can use the Table of Contents on the right hand side of this window to navigate between the different sections.

IMPORTANT: Some recent H series onwards sold outside of the UK seem to be unable to set a UK region on SmartHub, i.e to download UK Apps or use UK Apps. Some have, unfortunately, a hard coded region setting.
