This time last year, Samsun promised a crowd at CES that it would be connecting all of its Smart TVs to internet of things devices by 2017. IoT being the big buzz word that it is at this year's show, it's no surprise, really that the company is stepping up to the challenge.

Interestingly, it's doing so with a dongle. Specifically the SmarThings USB adapter, which connects its smart TVs to an ecosystem of 200 IoT devices. The dongle will be free to all those who picked up a 2015 Samsung.

Surely lots more to come from Samsung on the smart TV and IOT front in the hours and days to come.
