Samsung had announced earlier this month that it would launch its free and linear video streaming service in India and various European markets. While the service went live in India shortly after the announcement, the Netherlands got access to Samsung TV Plus today. Samsung smart TV users can start watching Samsung TV Plus channels starting today.
Samsung TV Plus currently features 20 channels (6 Dutch and 14 international) in the Netherlands, including lifestyle, reality TV, music, movies, and news. The Samsung TV Plus app for Galaxy smartphones and tablets is still not available in the Netherlands, but we expect it to go live soon.
The South Korean tech firm’s free and linear TV service is ad-supported, and users don’t need to pay for anything. It doesn’t even require a setup, let alone the need to add a credit card or a user registration process. Users can just open Samsung TV Plus and start watching all the free content, including movies, music, TV shows, and news.
Samsung claims that it has launched over 1,000 channels on Samsung TV Plus worldwide. The service was first launched in South Korea, and then it expanded to other markets worldwide, including the US, Canada, India, and Europe. It even has a few 4K channels, but most are limited to 720p or 1080p.
