Samsung TV Plus launched for Galaxy smartphones, tablets in Korea
After launching Samsung TV Plus in India earlier this month, the company has announced that it has launched the Samsung TV Plus app for Galaxy smartphones and tablets in South Korea. Galaxy users in Samsung’s home country would now be able to stream the same content on their mobile devices as they could on their Tizen-powered smart TVs.
The Samsung TV Plus app for smartphones and tablets allows users to stream content wherever they are. The app has three tabs: Live, Discover, and My TV Plus. The Live tab shows the complete list of channels along with EPG (Electronic Program Guide) and the currently-playing channel. The Discover tab shows featured content, recommended channels and videos, and movies. The My TV Plus tab shows users their favorite channels and reminders. The app also supports a floating window, which means that users can continue using their smartphone or tablet while watching Samsung TV Plus videos in a smaller, floating window.
Right now, Samsung is offering access to 37 channels via Samsung TV Plus in South Korea across various genres, including children, entertainment, lifestyle, movies, music, news, sports, and TV series. The app is compatible with Galaxy smartphones and tablets running Android 8.0 or newer. The app was first launched in the US last year in September. The app will go live in Canada, Germany, and India this month.
Lee Won-jin, Vice President of Services for Samsung Electronics’ wireless business, said, “The Samsung TV Plus mobile app is a new platform for conveniently watching a variety of content, and will delight Galaxy users by continuously expanding content.”
