All 2019 Samsung Smart TVs and select 2018 TV models with a firmware update will feature the all-new Apple TV app in more than 100 countries and offer AirPlay 2 support in 176 countries starting today, the company has announced.
The news comes following an announcement at CES that Apple would offer iTunes movies and TV shows on Samsung TVs.
“For the last decade, Samsung has been at the forefront of offering the broadest selection of content available to consumers on our Smart TV platform.” said Won-Jin Lee, Executive vice president, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
“As the first TV manufacturer to integrate the Apple TV app on a Smart TV platform, Samsung continues to offer our customers incredible value and access to the Apple TV app experience on the largest screens available today.”
The Apple TV app is integrated fully into Samsung’s Smart TV platform, and allows users access to more than 100,000 iTunes movies and TV shows to buy or rent. Customers can also subscribe to Apple TV channels within the Apple TV app.
This update will also include the ability to view Apple TV+ – Apple’s SVOD platform that was announced in March.
