Getting the Most from Your Samsung Smart TV


Now that we’re spending more time at home, and our daily routines have changed dramatically, we thought you’d like to explore everything that the Samsung Smart TV in your home can do for you – to make your life easier, and to liven up your routine.

More of What You Love to Watch – for Free

In addition to paid subscription-based streaming services, your Samsung Smart TV also gives you access to our own streaming service: Samsung TV Plus. It’s 100 percent free, it comes preinstalled on all 2016 to 2020 Samsung Smart TVs, and there are no downloads, additional devices, or credit cards required. With a simple internet connection, you can discover new shows and access video-on-demand services with ease.

With an ever-growing list of free channels – including CBS News, Bon Appétit, PlayersTV, and The Movie Hub in the U.S., Samsung TV Plus offers entertainment for every taste.

Along with this wide selection of leading channels and network favorites, there is also a wealth of free content for those interested in the arts. You can enjoy a high-definition concert by the Berlin Philharmonic 1, or marvel at one of the Metropolitan Opera’s nightly opera streams 2, along with other tours and exhibits – all from the comfort of your own home.

Helping You Be Well and Stay Fit

Even at the best of times, it can be tough to keep up with your daily wellness routine. And right now, many people are looking for alternatives to gyms and group classes. That’s why Samsung has partnered with leading brands in home wellness to bring you early access to 6 new health and wellness apps – helping you stay fit and healthy while at home.

Now, you can check out over 250 instructive videos from leading brands – barre3, Calm, Echelon, Fitplan, Jillian Michaels Fitness and obé Fitness. From barre classes and guided meditations, to celebrity-led personal training sessions – whatever type of fitness routine you prefer, it’s all available right now on your Samsung Smart TV.

Samsung Partners with Leading Personal Fitness Brands to Launch Wellness Apps on Its Smart TV Platform

And soon, we will launch Samsung Health on Samsung Smart TVs – a comprehensive health and wellness platform designed to meet your unique home wellness needs. It will include all of the fitness apps we’ve already released. Available beginning this May in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Korea 3 – and with more markets on the horizon – Samsung Health will deliver the tools you need to stay well while staying at home.

Making the Most of Your Time at Home

As people receive more deliveries at home, your Samsung Smart TV can even notify you when someone is at your door. Thanks to SmartThings integration, with a Ring doorbell, you can see when someone has arrived at your front door with that takeout order or grocery delivery you’ve been waiting for. With support for up to 4 cameras, you can also keep an eye on other parts of your home, all from your TV screen, even when watching your favorite show.

When paired with compatible Samsung home appliances, your TV can also keep you reminded about other household tasks – when your laundry is done, when your oven is preheated to the right temperature for dinner, and when it’s time to take it out.

Staying Productive

One challenge that a lot of people are facing as they work from home is staying focused and productive. So many workers are looking for ways to recreate their office experience in their living rooms. Samsung Smart TVs can make it easier to stay productive when it’s time to work.

In 2019, Samsung introduced an exclusive feature that can help anyone who needs to work from home: Remote Access. Available on the company’s latest Smart TVs, it allows you to remotely access and manage their personal computers through their TV, regardless of their PC’s location.4  Whether you want to review a presentation on a big screen, or access a file while your computer’s in the other room, Remote Access provides flexibility for anyone using their home as an office.

Of course, there are also students who need to study from home. Remote Access also offers a wide variety of cloud-based documentation services that can make their lives easier. Using a web browser, students can use a view online courses and live lectures on their TV’s spacious screen, so they won’t miss a single note or detail.

Remote Access also comes equipped with Wi-Fi Direct, which facilitates seamless screen sharing between TVs and PCs, mobile phones and tablets. So when the day is done and people want to relax and unwind, they can enjoy content from their PC, mobile phone or tablet on their TV’s larger screen.

Find Some Peace and Quiet

Now, every so often, even the most media-savvy among us need a break from staring at screens to enjoy some peace and quiet. Thankfully, Samsung TV’s Ambient Mode can help us do just that.

Ambient Mode creates a relaxing environment through your Smart TV by displaying works of art, family photos, and other calming content when turned off. When you’d like to completely tune out, you can program Ambient Mode to match the wallpaper 5 or background of the space behind your TV – blending the screen seamlessly with its surroundings.

Plus, thanks to Tap View, transforming your TV into your own personal photo gallery has never been easier. Available on Samsung’s latest TVs, Tap View lets you mirror photos and other media to your TV screen with a simple tap of your smartphone. And with QLED displays’ revolutionary image technology, you’ll be able to look back at your favorite snaps in the full, high-resolution quality they deserve.
