Samsung Smart TVs to debut iTunes app and AirPlay2 support

Samsung Smart TVs to debut iTunes app and AirPlay2 support

"For this reason, it will provide a much-needed services revenue boost for Apple", said Pescatore.

Other than that, Samsung Smart TVs in 190 countries throughout the world will also be able to support Apple AirPlay 2 protocols very soon. "By adding Micro LED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire", said the company on its website.

The announcements come a day after Samsung surprised the industry by bringing both Airplay support and an Apple iTunes Movies and TV Shows app to its 2018 and 2019 TVs.

And similar to Vizio, LG at CES earlier today also announced a new partnership with Apple that will see support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on its 2019 line of smart TVs.

The Spaniard made the decisive break of serve in the third game of the final set to take a lead he never lost. He was very solid and I had to play very good tennis. "I did everything well today".

"Bringing more content, value and open platform functionality to Samsung TV owners and Apple customers through iTunes and AirPlay is ideal for everyone", said Won-Jin Lee, Executive Vice President, Service Business of Visual Display at Samsung. Indeed, it didn't take long before Vizio officially announced its own adoption plans for the feature, with its SmartCast-enabled TVs getting the feature at some point in the near future.

But what we're most excited about is the AirPlay 2 compatibility.

The move means iTunes movie and TV show libraries will be accessible from 2018 and 2019 smart TVs manufactured by Samsung. This also represents the first time that Apple allows access to its service from a non-Apple device, essentially bypassing the need for a customer to buy Apple hardware such as the Apple TV. But here is the thing: Apple's streaming service is expected to launch sometime this year, and it will compete directly with the likes of Netflix. Watching content on iTunes requires some form of Apple device, whether it's an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. Likewise, the Q900 includes Samsung's new AI Remote with Bixby for voice control, along with Amazon Echo and Google Home compatibility. Although service revenues for Apple reached an all-time high of $10 billion during the fourth quarter, most of Apple's revenue still comes from device sales.
