Samsung is adding its Samsung TV Plus streaming service to Galaxy smartphones. The app, present in the brand’s smart TVs, carries a small catalog of live and on-demand content for consumers in South Korea.
As of this Wednesday (23), Samsung TV Plus will be available in the Galaxy Store and Google Play Store “for a selected list of Galaxy smartphones”. The app will introduce the same new features already present in the smart TV version for cell phones: 135 traditional TV “channels” – among them, CBSN, Cheddar, NewsNOW and Bloomberg TV + – and a catalog of series, reality shows and several other programs for follow any event whenever you want.
According to Android Police, Samsung’s service has similar features to the Pluto TV and Plex app, services that offer TV programs and live broadcasts from a variety of Internet channels. In Brazil, the proposal is close to the SKY Online model, where there is a catalog of films, series and programs already contracted in the contracted plan.
The smartphones compatible with the service will be: Samsung Galaxy S10; Galaxy S20; Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 20. For now, the app is exclusive to residents of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, South Korea and Thailand. No payment or credit card registration is required to download and follow TV channels via Samsung TV Plus.
