Samsung Smart TVs to launch iTunes movies and TV shows.
With AirPlay 2 support, Samsung customers will be able to play videos, photos, music, podcasts and more from Apple devices directly to Samsung Smart TVs.
Samsung Electronics has announced it will offer iTunes movies and TV shows and Apple AirPlay 2 support on 2019 Samsung Smart TV models beginning this spring. Support on 2018 Samsung Smart TVs will be made available via firmware update. A new iTunes movies and TV shows app will debut only on Samsung Smart TVs in more than 100 countries. AirPlay 2 support will be available on Samsung Smart TVs in 190 countries worldwide.
With the new iTunes movies and TV shows app on Samsung Smart TVs, Samsung customers can access their existing iTunes library and browse the iTunes store to buy or rent from a selection of hundreds of thousands of movies and TV episodes -- including the largest selection of 4K HDR movies. iTunes movies and TV shows will work seamlessly with Samsung's Smart TV services, such as Universal Guide, the New Bixby and Search, to create a consistent experience across Samsung's platform.
With AirPlay 2 support, Samsung customers will be able to play videos, photos, music, podcasts and more from Apple devices directly to Samsung Smart TVs, including QLED 4K and 8K TVs, The Frame and Serif lifestyle TVs, as well as other Samsung UHD and HD models.
"We pride ourselves on working with top industry leaders to deliver the widest range of content services to our Smart TV platform," said Won-Jin Lee, executive vice president, visual display business at Samsung Electronics. "Bringing more content, value and open platform functionality to Samsung TV owners and Apple customers through iTunes and AirPlay is ideal for everyone."
