In the past year, Samsung has been doing quite a bit to improve their Smart TV experience. We’ve seen various apps being added such as ESPN and Freeform, Amazon Prime Music, YouTube TV, and Starz to name a few. We’ve also seen the addition of Bixby into select 2018 Smart TV models. The buck does not stop here as Samsung is continuing to enhance the overall experience one receives when purchasing a smart television from them. We are now receiving word that the Roku Channel will join the growing list of apps making their way to Samsung Smart TVs.
The Roku Channel will be added to Samsung Smart TVs at some point this summer. If you aren’t familiar, the Roku Channel features numerous films and TV shows from its content partners. It is supported by ads, but it will feature half the ads per programming hour as seen on traditional television. This should be a great addition to the increasing number of apps being added to Samsung’s Smart Hub.
2018 has already seen some hefty improvements from Samsung’s TV business as we saw the announcement of their 2018 TV lineup. The lineup includes new QLED TVs, UHD TVs, Premium UHD TVs and TVs with extra-large screen sizes of 75-inches and up. In addition, there are a few technological advancements to improve your experience.
Roku will confirm in the coming weeks which Samsung Smart TVs will receive its ad-supported Roku Channel.
