F-Secure for smart TV
-I recently bought a Samsung UE55MU7070 and was wondering if there is an antivirus product for it? Thanks.

Sorry for my reply. I'm also only F-Secure user (their home solutions);
Just my unofficial suggestions:
--> Probably F-Secure (or some other companies) do not provide certain AV-solution for such devices;
but maybe there is possible some workarounds or tricks; Based on certain OS of device;
--> F-Secure do provide "F-Secure SENSE" solution as hardware/software package (Wi-Fi Router + applications for supported platforms);
F-Secure SENSE should cover such devices on the certain layers; And with some of meanings;
Possible to re-check SENSE webpage or community-board about some more information;
Such design probably based on some limitations with devices/OS - where not expected to install malware; So -> not reasonable to use AV (or even not possible to scan/analysing/hook anything);
But possible to provide security layers as 'blocking known malicious/harmful websites and pages'; And some other security layers (or design/technologies);
It can be done with different designs. As example, F-Secure SENSE do able provide potential security layers for connected devices; For example, potentially discussed: https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-SENSE/Https-Scan-and-malware-detection/td-p/96749
As Ukko wrote I recommend too Sense.
In this fine smart television is internet browsing, video calls, wifi, bluetooth.
Many kind of connections.
This is one example of IOT (internet of things). Something has to do.
In older televisions are only smart in programs! And TV-box is quite stupid. 😄
