Samsung TV Plus Guide: Channel List, Free Content, Pros, Cons, and more…

Free streaming is taking the world by storm. In the past few years, multiple platforms have emerged that offer free content to their users. Samsung TV Plus is one of the pivotal ones among them. This streaming service by Samsung offers over 250 free channels to viewers in 24 countries across the globe. 

This streaming service can be accessed over the web. However, the Samsung TV app is currently available only on some specific smart TVs and smartphones manufactured by Samsung. 

In this blog, we will tell you about the channels available on Samsung TV Plus, what type of free content they offer, the pros and cons of this platform, and everything else that you need to know! So, let’s begin!

What is Samsung TV Plus?

Samsung TV Plus is a video streaming platform developed by Samsung. Though its application is currently catering to Samsung smart TVs and some Samsung Galaxy smartphones only, it is believed to be the first step taken by Samsung toward entering the “Free-to-Air” video streaming market. 

It is an amazing and unique streaming platform that blends the best of both on-demand and live TV streaming. So, if you download Samsung TV Plus, you will get access to over 250 live TV channels, which means you literally don’t have to pay for satellite television anymore. But that’s not all! You also get thousands of movies and on-demand content. And you don’t have to pay anything for any content. 

When Was Samsung TV Plus Launched?

Back in 2015, Samsung started a video streaming platform that used to give access to videos on a rental basis. Initially, it was available only in the US and served only Samsung smart TVs.        

Slowly, it turned into a full-fledged Free Ad-Supported Streaming (FAST) service. Nowadays, it comes pre-installed with many Samsung smart TVs.   

Is Samsung TV Plus Free?  

Yes, Samsung TV Plus is a completely free ad-supported streaming platform. If you are not aware of the FAST platforms, then, let me tell you that these platforms offer you free content. Hence, you won’t have to pay any subscription fees to access their content. But, they will insert ads into the content, through which they will earn revenues. Such a type of OTT revenue model is called AVOD.          

Which TVs support Samsung TV Plus?

Currently, only smart TVs developed by Samsung support Samsung TV Plus. Here, OS is not that important, the brand is important. For example, Samsung TV Plus is available in the Google Play Store, but it cannot be downloaded on all devices. Also, it comes pre-installed in some of the Samsung Tizen smart TVs. 

However, if you are using a Samsung Smart TV model that was manufactured before 2016, you might have trouble accessing this app.
