Back in 2016, Samsung launched its free TV Plus streaming service for its smart TVs. For a whopping four years, the chaebol kept the service free allowing users to watch free shows. Back in April, we heard about the Samsung TV Plus service making its way to the Galaxy smartphones. Well, that is finally happening now.
The South Korean giant has now announced the service for the selected Galaxy smartphones. As expected, the service still remains completely free for the users. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Samsung TV Plus streaming service arrives on Galaxy smartphones!
Samsung TV Plus streaming service delivers fresh content from around 135 different channels allowing users to binge-watch new stuff. The best part about this service is the fact that it is completely free and will remain so as well. The TV Plus service will be available on multiple Galaxy smartphones namely Galaxy Note 20, S20, Note 10, and S10 devices. Surprisingly, there are no Fold devices on the list. With that said, we might see Samsung bringing the streaming service to more devices in near future.
While Samsung TV Plus is now available for Galaxy devices, that doesn’t mean it will not be able on the company’s TVs. It is also worth noting that to avail the service, you don’t even need to add your credit card details or any additional services as a matter of fact. With that said, there is no download feature available in the app and that makes sense considering it is a TV streaming service.
Among those 135 channels, there are many popular ones such as CBS News, Bloomberg TV+, ET Live, BeINSPORTS XTRA, FOX SOUL, Science TV, and much more. While there are a solid number of channels available in the app, you will still end up missing premium cable networks. Lastly, there might be some kind of geo-restrictions depending on the country you are residing in.
Galaxy S20 FE, Galaxy F14 incoming as well!
Apart from launching its TV Plus streaming service, Samsung is also planning to launch two new smartphones. We’re looking at the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition that will see its official unveiling in an hour or so. The company is hosting the Galaxy Unpacked event where it will reveal more information on the smartphone. In fact, it is aiming to sell 10 million units by the end of the year.
Samsung is also working on a camera-centric affordable lineup called Galaxy F and its first device namely Galaxy F41 might unveil tomorrow.
