Samsung on Monday announced it is rolling out support for AirPlay 2 and the Apple TV app to all 2019 Samsung Smart TVs and select 2018 models.
The Apple TV app operates on Samsung sets the same way it does on the Apple TV set top box. Users will select the Apple TV app, and will gain access to 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.
Customers will also be able to subscribe to Apple TV channels within the app, and will also be able to use Apple TV+, Apple’s original video subscription service, which will launch later this year.
The Apple TV app will work seamlessly with Samsung’s Smart TV Services, such as Universal Guide, Bixby and Search.
“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.”
AirPlay 2 allows iPhone, iPad, and Mac users to stream video and other content from their device to their Samsung Smart TV.
