Philips disables Smart TV options on some 2009 TVs
Philips is disabling the smart TV functionality of twelve models in the 2009 range of models on December 28.
Reports suggest that models with 32 to 47 inch screens in the 8000- and 9000-series are affected.
The early models only use sha-1 certificates for a secure network connection, and it is not possible to upload a software update for sha-2 support, which they say is now needed.
Philips Smart TVs from 2010 onwards will receive the update. Current models are not running on the Net TV platform anymore, but instead use Google Android TV. Some Philips models also run Google TV, for which support stopped in 2014.
Earlier this year, Microsoft ended support for Skype on smart TVs.
