Catching up with US and Asia

Samsung Electronics has announced that its premium Smart TV content service, TV Plus, is now available for users of Samsung Smart TVs in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Its North America and Southeast Asian customers have had the service available since 2015.

Owners of eligible Samsung Smart TVs with 4K/HDR capabilities in the EU will now have direct access to premium 4K UHD HDR content offered by Samsung, in partnership with Rakuten TV, and can find their favourite shows using the TV Plus straightforward interface.

All of Samsung’s 2017 4K TVs such as the flagship Q9F or the mid-range MU-Series models will access the new content service with 4K high dynamic range enabled.

Samsung TV Plus offers a wide selection of over 8,900 movies and TV shows broken down into three categories: New Releases, Family and UHD. Popular UHD movies like Passengers, Moneyball, and Hotel Transylvania are available via TV Plus, which can be accessed through the main menu and can be browsed by simply connecting an eligible Samsung Smart TV or Samsung 4K HDR smart TV to the Internet through a LAN-line or Wi-Fi network.

Heeman Lee, Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said: “Our goal at Samsung is to create innovative and valuable technology that makes our consumers’ lives easier and more enjoyable when it comes to watching their favorite content. With the European expansion of TV PLUS, we are thrilled to provide additional consumers access to new movies in UHD and HDR quality.”
