Samsung’s free video streaming service, Samsung TV Plus, is now available in India. Samsung TV Plus offers access to ad-supported video content, including documentaries, movies, music videos, news, sports, TV shows, and more. The company said that it launched Samsung TV Plus in India following a change in consumer behavior since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Samsung TV Plus will be available in India on all smart TVs from the company released since 2017. The video streaming service currently features 27 global and local channels, and the company said that it will add more channels soon. Samsung TV Plus will also be available on all Galaxy smartphones and tablets running Android 8.0 (or newer) starting tomorrow. The Samsung TV Plus app can be installed via Galaxy Store or Google Play Store.
The South Korean firm’s free, ad-supported video streaming service brings exciting content from various genres. Users don’t need to set up anything, have a credit card, or pay for any kind of subscription. They can just launch the app and start watching content, complete with EPG (Electronic Programming Guides). With its launch in India, Samsung TV Plus is now available in 14 countries globally, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, and the US.
Reshma Prasad Virmani, Director, Services, Samsung India, said, “Over the last one year, consumers have been spending more time at home. Their television sets and smartphones have become the centers of their lives, for both entertainment as well as information. We also noticed that consumers now immensely value great media content, reason why we chose to introduce Samsung TV Plus in India. Over the next few months, we expect to scale TV Plus to add more channels and content.“
