Apple iTunes Is Coming To Samsung Smart TVs; Alongside AirPlay 2 Support

Samsung TV with iTunes

Apple makes a device called Apple TV that connects to a full television set, but has never produced a full set itself. Not only will customers be able to view iTunes movies and TV shows on Samsung TVs, but the partnership also brings AirPlay 2 support to Samsung's TVs as well. With this, the user can take advantage to expand any size they desire, even at an irregular 9x3, 1x7 or 5x1 screen sizes. Samsung Electronics has just announced that it will support iTunes Movies and TV Shows on their new Samsung Smart TV models.

More deals like the Samsung smart TV agreement and Vizio and LG AirPlay agreements could put to rest doubts that industry analysts have expressed about the viability of Apple's video streaming service.

Both Samsung and fellow TV giant LG have confirmed their latest televisions will also support AirPlay 2, the Apple wireless tech that enables devices such as iPhones and iPads to connect to smart TVs. The deal comes ahead of Apple's expected launch of a rival to Netflix.

Vizio has the most comprehensive range of models supporting AirPlay 2, including the P-Series Quantum series from 2018 and 2019.

Many are considering this move as the beginning of a new revenue strategy from Apple in particular, involving the distribution of its services on devices not made in-house. Earlier today, Vizio announced that it will be adding support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit to its SmartCast TV platform via a free update sometime in the second quarter of this year.

Thanks to the modular nature of micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customize it to fit any room or space, according to Samsung. Apple CEO Tim Cook said last week in his revised outlook that services generated $10.8 billion in fiscal Q1 and that Apple plans to double the size of its service business from 2016 to 2020. About one year ago, Apple finally allowed Amazon's Prime Video app onto its Apple TV.

"You can even play music on the TV and sync it with other AirPlay 2-compatible speakers anywhere in your home".
