How to connect TV to wifi

I recently got a 2018 Flying Cloud. I'm getting to know it and I have a question about the TV. It's a Samsung and of the same vintage as the AS. How do I connect to wifi?

Should be an option in the advanced settings. Mine will show you a list of found wifi networks, then select the one you want, key in the password and you should connect.

I agree, if it's not a smart TV use a Roku, FireTV, Apple TV or similar.

If it is a smart TV look up the instructions, online or in your instruction books.

My 2017 FC Samsung is NOT a smart TV.
If yours is the same it will need a streaming device.
Devices are cheap, but look at each before buying. I almost bought a Roku but it's free programming had NOTHING I watched.
Any sports package will be an additional charge, quite expensive, IMO.

Our 2019 GT doesn't have a smart TV. Just go to a device: Apple, Roku, Fire TV Stick. Be sure to have a list of your passwords, currently the TOL Amazon Fire TV Stick is only 35.00.

Or replace the TV with a Smart TV.

Amazon 4K Fire stick plugged into the TV AUX input. I don't even bother trying to connect to campground WiFi when available as it's almost always inadequate for streaming. As long as I have a cell signal, I use my iPhone as a hot spot and connect to that. I can reach all of my streaming services including YouTube TV which even allows access to my local network stations and sports.

I have been using an HDMI to lightning adapter and just plug the tv into my iPhone. I have all my streaming apps and downloads on the phone. I use the HDMI line from the blue ray player thatís already run to the cabinet.
If you want to get really fancy for about $20 you can get a hdmi audio splitter and send the phone signal to both the tv and the stereo in you rig.
