Apple Music Begins Rolling Out to Samsung Smart TV’s →

Samsung and Apple have announced the addition of the Apple Music App to Samsung's Smart TV lines from 2018, 2019 and 2020. From today, Samsung Smart TV owners in over 100 countries will gain access to Apple Music's catalogue of over 60 million songs, thousands of curated playlists, music videos, live radio, and more. Samsung Smart TV owners can sign-in or sign up for Apple Music directly through the new Tizen-based App.

“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.”

To further clarify - if you own a Samsung Smart TV that offers the Apple TV App natively, you will also gain access to the new Apple Music App.
