With apps from barre3, Calm, Echelon, Fitplan, Jillian Michaels Fitness and obé Fitness, Samsung offers exclusive fitness content today on your Samsung Smart TV

Samsung Electronics announced that starting today, Samsung Smart TVs in a variety of regions around the world will have access to six new health and wellness apps in partnership with leading fitness brands – barre3, Calm, Echelon, Fitplan, Jillian Michaels Fitness and obé Fitness. Later this year, these apps will be part of Samsung Health, a comprehensive fitness platform for Samsung Smart TVs announced at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. But with homebound consumers needing fitness solutions, Samsung and its partners are bringing consumers early access to over 5,000 hours of free at-home wellness content right now.

 

“As our community grapples with unprecedented disruptions to their daily routines, it is important for homebound consumers to have access to free high-quality health and wellness offerings,” said Salek Brodsky, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development for Samsung Electronics. “Our partnership with these premium brands redefines the boundaries of what free streaming services can provide, and we look forward to enhancing these offerings by bringing a full Samsung Health experience to our TVs later this year.”

 

Over 250 instructive videos are available now – from barre classes and guided meditations, to celebrity-led personal training sessions –  for Samsung Smart TV consumers to access from home.

 

These premium health and wellness apps will be fully integrated into Samsung Health, which will launch soon on 2020 Samsung Smart TVs, and will expand upon the suite of apps available today. Samsung Health will provide consumers with more alternatives to traditional exercise options, like gyms and group classes, and adapt to each consumer’s unique schedule – allowing it to become a crucial pillar of our consumers’ daily routines for years to come.
