TL;DR is absolutely a dumb comment.
As is offering advice on "class" when you make the types of comments you're making.
"stating IHS claimed that Android is "winning" when that's clearly the author's slanted narrative"
I highlighted the text in a photo: there was no misrepresentation of IHS statement: "Android is currently the most popular smart TV operating system platform."
And please check out the article again. Apple didn't select Samsung for "unit market share." If Apple were trying to cast a broad net by sheer volume, it could write an Android app and target not only most of 2018's smart TVs but millions of Android tablets used as TVs. Apple was not in any way seeking to target volume. That's the entire point of the article. You could get that from standing across the room and just reading the subheadings.
Samsung/Tizen is the low-hanging fruit for getting Apple TV in front of the largest audience of people who might be willing to pay for Apple services, and thus a good choice for increasing their Services market share. That is the tL;DR.
