Tech giant Samsung Electronics has become the first TV brand to integrate Apple Music into its Smart TV Platform.
Available on Samsung Smart TV models from 2018 through 2020, Apple Music subscribers can stream songs and watch music videos via their TV.
“As people worldwide spend more time at home, Samsung has been adding more entertainment and wellness options to its Smart TV platform,” reads the press release announcing the integration.
Owners of Samsung Smart TVs can download Apple Music from the Samsung Smart TV App Store, sign in to an existing account with their Apple ID, or begin the subscription process right from their TV.
Samsung Smart TV owners without an Apple Music subscription can also try Apple Music free for three months with an individual, family or student subscription.
Samsung has partnerships with various music streaming companies for a range of its devices.
That same year, Spotify and Samsung entered into an agreement for the Swedish company to be the ‘go to music service provider’ for Samsung products and revealed in March 2019 that Spotify would come pre-installed on millions of new Samsung mobile devices.
“Our goal has always been to deliver the best entertainment experiences to consumers – and as people spend more time at home, we are more committed to that mission than ever.”
