Samsung smart TVs with AirPlay 2 and Apple TV app
Using the Apple TV app on Samsung TVs
With the Apple TV app, I have a single platform on which I can watch movies, series, the news, and sports. This way, I don't need a separate Apple TV box, but it's integrated in my TV. This app also allows me to watch television via cable, a satellite, or an online subscription. Inside the app, I can choose additional services.
Using AirPlay 2 on Samsung TVs
With AirPlay 2, I can effortlessly stream videos, photos, and other things from my iPhone, iPad, or Mac to my Samsung television. This allows me to show the holiday snapshots without having to pass my phone around. This latest version of AirPlay has a number of advantages compared to its predecessor:
- Multi-room support: I can play audio on multiple speakers at the same time.
- I control music and series from multiple devices.
- I listen to music and watch series while I make phone calls, play games, or use Siri.
Apple TV+ subscription
Apple TV+ is available since fall 2019. This is the latest streaming service from Apple. It offers exclusive movies and series I can't watch anywhere else. I can use this service from the already available Apple TV app, so I don't have to install anything extra.
