AirPlay 2 support on Samsung Smart TVs rolling out with firmware update


Last updated: May 13th, 2019 at 20:31 UTC+02:00

It was confirmed back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 that the latest Samsung Smart TVs will get the new Apple TV app as well as support for AirPlay 2. Samsung has confirmed that starting today, all 2019 and select 2018 smart TV models will get the new Apple TV app in over 100 countries and AirPlay 2 support in 176 countries through a firmware update.

The new Apple TV app will enable Samsung Smart TV owners to access iTunes movies and TV shows in addition to Apple TV channels. Apple has been working with some of the biggest TV manufacturers to expand the footprint of its new TV app. Since Samsung is the leading manufacturer of premium TVs, this partnership was inevitable.

Samsung Smart TVs get AirPlay 2 support

Samsung is the first TV manufacturer to offer the new Apple TV app on a smart TV platform. Users just need to select the app icon to access all of their iTunes movies and TV show purchases. They will also be able to access the entire library of content, including 4K HDR titles. The app is going to work with Samsung’s Smart TV services such as Bixby and Universal Guide to provide users with a consistent experience on the platform.

It will also be possible to subscribe to Apple TV channels from within the app. Apple’s original video subscription service, Apple TV+, will also be accessible from this app when it launches in the fall. AirPlay 2 will enable users to play media content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their Samsung Smart TV.
