However, these links don’t, sadly, let you skip directly to watching or recording the shows themselves, but rather they just bring up a list of the 50 most recent tweets about the show you selected.Also, since the system is essentially just a ‘word search’ algorithm shows like ‘Who Do You Think You Are?Hitting the Smart Hub key on either of the two remotes you get with Samsung’s 2014 Smart TVs (more on these later) immediately throws up a key difference with Samsung’s 2013 Smart menus.

Samsung’s 2013 Smart TV system set new standards of online TV platform sophistication, so our hope were understandably high for the 2014 version.

Its main strengths remain unchanged, but dig a little deeper and it's clear that this year is really one of evolution and not revolution.

This is an excellent alternative browsing tool if you have no clue what you want to watch at any given moment.

A new option next to the Timeline View is ‘Trending’, which trawls Twitter in search of TV shows being discussed and presents you with links for the 24 most ‘talked about’ shows.

At the very least the Movies and TV home page should have an icon telling you what service a film or TV show is available on, or better still, it should only list content from the services you can actually access for free or via payment services you’ve told the TV you subscribe to.

As with last year the Films and TV Shows hub feels very much like a work in progress right now – or perhaps a hub that works more effectively in other international territories.

This looks very similar to last year’s version too, and the 12 ‘new’ titles selected to dominate the screen are based on both your personal recommendations and general popularity.

The top row shows new films, while the bottom row shows new TV shows.

Having this guidance out of the box is a welcome improvement on the 'figure it out for yourself' approach taken in 2013 (at least until Samsung introduced some tutorial videos a few months after the TVs launched).

Mixing what’s ‘generally popular’ with your individual favourites on the TV hub might sound a bit annoying on paper, but actually, assuming your tastes aren’t wholly ‘anti mainstream’ the combination works quite effectively.

Though at the time of writing this feature didn’t seem to be working.
