Lack of the picture turn off option (K series)

I haven't found the function for switching off the screen picture on K series TV. Yes it's working but only when playing my MP3 or video content from USB. I want to switch the screen off when playing TV channel or youtube or wahatever (to save energy and eyes). I couldnt find any solution. Is there any hidden one? Hard to believe that Samsung "downgraded" their models in this way. Thank you.

Confirmed on K as well. Should be first reported/asked to Samsung, not here.

On E wasn't existing, and I never felt the need nor been requested. Quite easy to implement anyway...
Just let me find strange that "first wanted feature for TV" is to "hide TV" :D

im missing tools->sleep timer the most atm :)
seems like they're now all for "voice commands"... but even that shit doesnt work, all im getting is "not available" despite help telling me it should work.
most fucked user experience ever, those idots@samsung fuck things more up w/ every new generation.

i know, its connected to inet. it recognizes command and then it shows "not available"
the best thing about q is the shutdown animation :)
