London, UK – March 25th, 2020 – Samsung TV Plus, Samsung Electronics’ free Smart TV video service, is continuing to expand its free linear TV line-up.

“The advanced gains made in content availability have reframed the role of the television in our homes”, said Guy Kinnell, Vice President, TV and AV, Samsung Electronics UK Ltd. “Watching quality entertainment that is personal to your tastes has taken another big step forward this year on Samsung Smart TVs.”
