Apple Music Rolls Out To Samsung Smart TV Models From 2018 Onwards
Samsung today announced that it is bringing a new Apple Music app to some of its smart TVs. Those with TVs sold from 2018 through today will be able to download the app for free, although they’ll need an Apple Music subscription to access most features.
Once the app is downloaded it will function similarly to the Apple TV app that has been rolling out to multiple smart TV brands and set top boxes.
Users will sign in to the app using their Apple ID and password if they already have a subscription. They will also be able to follow a sign-up process if needed, too. Once signed in users will have access to all of their streaming music as well as radio stations like Beats 1.
Samsung is apparently pretty pleased that it’s the first to support Apple Music, too.
Last year, we were the first TV manufacturer to offer the Apple TV app, and today, we are the first to offer Apple Music. Our partnership with Apple has been instrumental in bringing consumers an unparalleled lineup of different entertainment options, especially as they seek out more content choices from their Smart TVs.
This move continues Apple’s expansion of its services away from its own hardware and towards a wider audience via other manufacturers’ platforms.
If you have a compatible TV sold from 2018 through 2020 you can download the Apple Music app from the Smart TV App Store.
