Previously, the owners of these TV models had access to personal assistants, Bixby, from Samsung and Amazon Alexa. The range of personal assistants available on 2020 Samsung smart TVs continues to expand. Now ONVIF has clarified through a blog post that the BBC's tablet operating system is working perfectly on Samsung products.

Back on August 15, 2013, ONVIF stated that it would not support device manufacturers from Samsung "until 2019". However, the eventual shift to a different operating system doesn't appear to have affected ONVIF's software support.

On second thought, ONVIF's thoughts about Samsung's Android effort does make sense. By allowing a similar interface between the BBC iPad and Samsung television, Samsung could gain an alternate option that users might likely prefer.

For now, Samsung remains the only device maker to have voice control for digital assistants such as Bixby working on a 2018 smart TV and 2020 TV.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A man shot two people dead after arguing over marriage before he was killed by an off-duty police officer responding to the noise, authorities said.

WNCN spoke with an off-duty police sergeant in the Raleigh area who said he responded to the call for a fight in progress around 3 a.m. Sunday at the N.C. State University Recreation Center in Fayetteville.

The sergeant said he responded immediately to the scene after getting a call about the shooting and found the assailant, who had just been shot by a resident at the recreation center. Both were dead on the scene, officials said.

Just after the deputy arrived, authorities said two corrections officers shot the man they said was arguing with the security guard.

Kim Mohan, an attorney representing the sheriff of Durham County, later identified the attacker as KJ Kamau Rosenhaussen, 31, of Fayetteville. He died at WakeMed.

Rosenhaussen was wanted for shoplifting in Durham County last month and had been arrested that day in the city of Raleigh, officials said.

"The suspect still had a gun in his hand and mistook the deputy who was clearing a magazine for an active gunman,'' Sheriff Justin Davis told The Post and Courier of Raleigh. "He ended up where he needed to (sic) be.''

Authorities have not yet released surveillance video from inside the facility.
