Samsung integrates Apple Music on its Smart TVs

Samsung Electronics is now the first TV brand to bring Apple Music into its Smart TV platform. In a historic announcement, the company said users of Samsung TV models from 2018 to 2020 will now be able to enjoy Apple Music right away on their Samsung Smart TVs. This will be applicable to consumers in more than 100 countries worldwide, including the Philippines.

As people globally spend more time at home these days, Samsung has been adding more entertainment and wellness options to its Smart TV platform. With Apple Music, subscribers can stream over 60 million songs ad-free, watch top music videos, and explore thousands of playlists curated by world-class music experts and tastemakers.

Apple Music subscribers can also get customized daily recommendations and tune in to the innovative Beats 1 radio station, a global live stream with exclusive shows by artists like Frank Ocean, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, DJ Khaled, and Elton John.

Plus, subscribers will also have access to new ‘At Home With Apple Music’ content that includes new editorial playlists, group FaceTime chats with artists at home, special artist interviews and playlists and more to help create a sense of connection and community during this time of distancing. In addition to Apple Music’s vast catalog, subscribers can also watch original shows, trending concerts, and other exclusive content on their Samsung Smart TVs.

“Our goal has always been to deliver that best entertainment experiences to consumers—and as people spend more time at home, we are more committed to that mission than ever,” said Samsung Electronics Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development Salek Brodsky.

In 2019, Samsung was the first TV manufacturer to offer the Apple TV app. “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,” Brodsky added.
