Samsung has announced that it will offer iTunes Movies and TV Shows, as well as AirPlay 2 support on 2019 Smart TV models starting this spring. A firmware update will be made available for 2018 models.

The new iTunes Movies and TV Shows app will debut on Samsung Smart TVs in over 100 countries and AirPlay 2 support will be available on Smart TVs in 190 countries.

With the new iTunes Movies and TV Shows app on Samsung Smart TVs, Samsung customers can access their existing iTunes library and browse the iTunes Store to buy or rent from a selection of hundreds of thousands of movies and TV episodes — including the largest selection of 4K HDR movies. iTunes Movies and TV Shows will work seamlessly with Samsung’s Smart TV Services, such as Universal Guide, the New Bixby and Search, to create a consistent experience across Samsung’s platform.

With AirPlay 2 support, Samsung customers will be able to effortlessly play videos, photos, music, podcasts and more from Apple devices directly to Samsung Smart TVs, including QLED 4K and 8K TVs, The Frame and Serif lifestyle TVs, as well as other Samsung UHD and HD models.
