Like me, all the other commentors on this thread are smarter than your average person, so we saw this coming as it has come before in IT.
The rest of the world need to work through these problems of bricking (kinda) a 3 or 4 year old device due to inability to update.
This has happened with Android phones, now punters look for the updatable ones and manufacturers are getting smarter.
Now the other (or often same) manufacturers of smart TVs need to think more, the stuff they were pushing out a couple of years ago was "anything to get us in the smart TV section of walmart".
They will have punters who are thinking, "i wont buy an xyz again" etc etc ... simple mind of the sell and buy world.
TL:DR ... in a few years time all devices that have anything smart about them will be updatable.
