    So North American, to buy some product made specifically for the Chinese market and have the ego to expect it to have been set up for the bloody yanks (Nobody designs for the Canadian market) what a Trumpian attitude, shame on your arrogance.

    every smart TV in China has a similar interface like this one, that's not Hongmeng OS and Huawei is not the first company to create such interface for smart TV, you can't compare the smart TV interface with the smart phone. Those contents are customised for Chinese customers that's why they only sell this in China. You may feel it's useless because you can't understand and enjoy the contents.Those TVs don't usually do much updates and I don't understand why someone wants to buy a Huawei TV, it's not like they have been doing this for a long time.
    I guess you have to choose either between Chinese government or private American company to collect your data.
