Apple has started rolling out its new 'TV' app that features content from multiple streaming services, including iTunes. The new app is now available on Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad as well as 2019 and select 2018 Samsung Smart TVs.

In addition, 2019 and select 2018 Samsung TVs across 176 countries now support Apple AirPlay 2 functionality. This enables users to push music, video and other media files wirelessly from an iPhone, iPad or Mac to a Samsung TV.

- "For the last decade, Samsung has been at the forefront of offering the broadest selection of content available to consumers on our Smart TV platform," said Won-Jin Lee, Executive Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "As the first TV manufacturer to integrate the Apple TV app on a Smart TV platform, Samsung continues to offer our customers incredible value and access to the Apple TV app experience on the largest screens available today.”

With Apple's 'TV' app, some Samsung TV owners now have direct access to 4K HDR movies from iTunes. Movies can be purchased or rented via an Apple ID account. Later this year, Apple will launch its TV+ streaming service, which will be available from the 'TV' app.
