Samsung has announced today that it is integrating the Apple Music onto its Smart TV Platform. The new app allows consumers to download the Apple Music app on Samsung smart TVs (2018, 2019 and 2020 models) and stream songs, music videos and Beats 1 radio shows. Samsung Smart TV owners can also try Apple Music free for three months with new subscriptions.
Samsung has been adding more entertainment and wellness options to its Smart TV platform in recognition of so many people staying at home, certainly for the immediate future. Apple Music enables streaming of 60 million+ ad-free songs and music videos, and an ability to review curated playlists. Subscribers will be able to get customized daily recommendations and tune in to the Beats 1 radio station, a live stream with shows by artists such as Frank Ocean and Elton John. Additionally, there will be access to new “At Home With Apple Music” content including new editorial playlists, group FaceTime chats with artists at home, artist interviews and playlists to help create “a sense of connection and community during this time of distancing.”
“Our goal has always been to deliver the best entertainment experiences to consumers – and as people spend more time at home, we are more committed to that mission than ever,” said Salek Brodsky, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development for Samsung Electronics. “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.”
Owners of Samsung Smart TVs can download Apple Music from the Samsung Smart TV App Store, sign in to an existing account with an Apple ID, or begin the subscription process from a TV. Samsung Smart TV owners can try Apple Music free for three months with an individual, family or student subscription. For more information on Samsung TVs, click here.
