How to turn a Smart TV into a Dumb TV?

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to completely turn a smart TV into a basic TV in the traditional sense.

However, you can definitely limit its smart functionalities and focus on its basic TV features.

Here are some ways you can achieve this:

  • Disable Smart Hub: Most Hisense TVs have a “Smart Hub” or similar interface that houses all the smart apps and features. You can usually disable this entirely from the TV settings menu. This will significantly reduce the smart TV aspect and make the interface more basic.
  • Disable Network Connection: If you don’t need internet access for streaming or other online features, disconnect the TV from your Wi-Fi or Ethernet network. This will completely block access to smart features.
  • Or simply buy a streaming stick like Roku, Fire TV, or Apple TV 4k and hook it via an HDMI cable. That’s it!

Hope it helps…
