Samsung's 2020 TVs get major app update

Mike Wheatley

Samsung Electronics said today that it has updated all of its 2020 QLED TVs, bringing the “most competitive” app offerings available today.


The upgrade has been rolled out to all of Samsung’s 2020 TV modes, including its flagship Q950TS QLED 8K television, and even its entry-level TV sets in the 2020 Full HD range. The company said that Samsung 2020 Smart TV owners now have unrivalled access to some of the best app platforms in the U.K., which should ensure they’ll never run out of things to watch.

The upgrade means that the most competitive and popular TV apps are guaranteed to be accessible on every one of Samsung’s new TVs this year. In total Samsung TVs now have access to more than 50 different apps, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Rakuten TV and the new Disney+ channel. The TVs will also be able to access dozens of British-only apps such as the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, NOW TV and BT Sport, as well as music streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify and BBC Sounds.

Guy Kinnell, vice president of TV and AV at Samsung Electronics UK, said today’s update was a proud moment for the company as it means its TVs can now access the widest selection of apps, across its entire range this year.

“Traditionally, upgrades like this happen in phases for the various TV models, but new for 2020 is that this upgrade reaches every Smart TV in our range from the get go, meaning that the very best entertainment offerings are accessible for all,” Kinnel said.
