August 8, 2017 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the availability of a new UHD channel on its premium Smart TV service TV PLUS in Europe. TV PLUS now features tailored Ultra-High Definition (UHD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom and allows consumers to easily navigate and access popular video on demand (VOD) channels using their internet connection.



Consumers can enjoy their favourite UHD and HDR movies through a UHD channel directly on their Samsung Smart TVs. VOD movies provided by TV PLUS are broken down into three categories: New Releases, Family and UHD. New Releases include titles that have been released within the past six to eight weeks, while the Family category includes newly released family-friendly titles as well as best-selling movies. The UHD category features movies that were recently released in UHD. Each category is refreshed weekly with new and top selling content.


Thanks to a premium partnership with Rakuten TV, TV PLUS offers a wide range of options for movie enthusiasts and families to enjoy. Current UHD movies available via TV PLUS include titles such as “Passengers,” “Moneyball,” “Hotel Transylvania” and many more.


“Our goal at Samsung is to create innovative and valuable technology that makes our consumers’ lives easier and more enjoyable when it comes to watching their favorite content,” said Heeman Lee, Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “With the European expansion of TV PLUS, we are thrilled to provide additional consumers access to new movies in UHD and HDR quality.”


Samsung TV PLUS delivers a user-friendly experience that allows users to easily access contents featuring scrolling channels menu so that the consumers do not have to struggle to search desired contents in each application. This familiar process makes the user experience simple and easy, so that retrieving UHD and HDR content is more enjoyable than ever before.



TV PLUS was first launched in 2015 in South Korea and continues to grow across its available markets including North America and Southeast Asia. In January 2017, TV PLUS was also made available with multiple channels in Germany.
