It doesn’t exactly have a premium subscription offer or original video content in its name, but that hasn’t stopped Samsung from launching its own streaming service. Of course, Samsung TV Plus basically collects programs, news and content broadcast by others, but, at least for those with access to the service, free content without subscription is a sufficient incentive. It requires that the streaming service be available in your country, not to mention your Smart TV, and Samsung has just announced a major expansion to ensure that is the case.
Initially starting in just 10 countries, Samsung has more than doubled that number in the past three months. This took until December 12, with the addition of Australia and Brazil, with Mexico soon after. Now, it has made Samsung TV Plus available not only in India, but also in 9 other European countries. The full list now has 23 as follows:
• South Korea
Samsung TV Plus is basically a subscription-free streaming service that offers content from more than 1,000 global channels, both VOD and Live TV, for free. Unlike most streaming services, however, it is not available on almost any device on which you can install the application. It is mainly available on Samsung Smart TVs, and those in India will find the app on 2017-2021 models.
That said, Samsung also expanded the reach of the Samsung TV Plus last September, making it available on some Samsung Galaxy devices, both phones and tablets, at least in the United States. This mobile application will also arrive in Canada, Germany, India and the United Kingdom in April. Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland will follow later this year.
