Samsung is offering even more of its TV customers the ability to access content without having to pay expensive subscription fees. The company’s popular TV Plus service that lets you access channels such as CNN, SuperToons TV, Action Movies, Rakuten TV and the Comedy Channel – is now launching in a number of new regions around the world including India, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland and Portugal.
These territories are now joining the UK, US, Australia, Brazil and Mexico, which have already been given access to the streaming app found on almost all new Samsung TVs.
If you didn’t already know, Samsung TV Plus gives you instant access to the top news, sports, entertainment, and more. In fact, there are over 80 channels available. Best of all, it’s completely free and doesn’t require any downloads, signups, credit cards, subscriptions, or additional devices.
Samsung TV Plus has become one of the fastest growing streaming services in the world after debuting in 2015. Given the amount of content available without reaching for your wallet, this is probably not difficult to deny.
Updates are also made regularly to improve the experience of recent changes, including a simplified player bar for more intuitive controls.

Another big news with Samsung TV Plus is that the new phone app is now available in more locations including the UK, Canada, Germany and India. The Samsung TV Plus Mobile app was first launched in the US late last year and gives select Galaxy users free access to the shows and content they love.
According to Samsung, Galaxy users who own a smartphone from the Galaxy Note20, Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note10 or Galaxy S10 series will be able to enjoy the app in April.
“The growth of Samsung TV Plus has all to do with the quality of the content, the ease of access and the multi-screen experiences it offers,” said Sang Kim, SVP for product and marketing at Samsung Electronics. “We’re working hard to deliver more to our customers everywhere – including our mobile offering.”
Earlier this year, Samsung TV Plus got a big boost with the launch of the new Vevo music channel. This playlist-filled station arrived in the UK back in February and offers free access to music videos 24/7.
Kevin McGurn, President of Sales and Distribution continued, “In the US, we partnered with Samsung TV Plus in the early days of our OTT expansion. Today they are one of our top performing television experiences, with tens of millions of viewers on Vevo channels every day. We look forward to building on this success and doing the same in the UK and Europe, but with a more local curation. “
