NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced that beginning today, 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. Samsung customers are now able to
enjoy Apple TV channels and iTunes movies and TV shows on Samsung Smart

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.”

Fully integrated into Samsung’s Smart TV platform, users can simply
select the Apple TV app icon to access all of their iTunes movies and TV
show purchases and browse more than 100,000 iTunes movies and TV shows
to buy or rent, including titles available in 4K HDR, in pristine

TV channels within the Apple TV app — paying for only the ones they
want — and watch on demand directly in the app. Samsung Smart TV users
will be able to enjoy Apple TV+, Apple’s original video subscription
service, in the Apple TV app across the same model lines when the
service launches this fall. With AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung Smart TVs,
customers can now also effortlessly play videos and other content from
their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their Samsung Smart TV.

The Apple TV app will work seamlessly with Samsung’s Smart TV Services,
such as Universal Guide, Bixby and Search, to create a consistent
experience across Samsung’s platform.
