Samsung is responsible for some of the most popular Android phones in the world, but the company has plenty of other ventures up its corporate sleeves as well. Samsung brought its TV Plus service to select Galaxy phones a few months back, and it's announcing expanded availability that includes two new countries now with more on the way next year.
With the new addition of Australia and Brazil, Samsung TV Plus is now accessible in a total of 12 areas including the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy, Thailand, and Korea. Customers in these regions with a modern Samsung TV or a recent Galaxy device like the S20 or the Z Flip can now view 742 channels from around 300 of the world's top broadcast networks.
Samsung says it now reaches over 15 million active users thanks to recent expansions and new content partnerships. And the credits haven't even rolled for TV Plus just yet — more regions are planned to join the party next year, including Mexico, India, Sweden, and more European countries.
The Samsung TV Plus app is available on APK Mirror and the Play Store if you're in one of the supported countries and want to check it out for yourself and help Samsung boost those active user numbers.
Now available in India
The service has now been made available in India but the content on offer is far more limited. Unlike in the US, where Samsung TV Plus offers 742 channels, users in India only have access to 27 channels at the time of launch. For what it’s worth, Samsung says that it’s working to bring more content partners on board.
More European countries
After debuting in India late last month, Samsung says it's bringing its TV Plus service to nine countries in Europe soon. Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, and Sweden will all get access to the service "by May," though Samsung's press release declined to share any specific dates. That will bring the total international availability to 23 countries.
Samsung says that it's also expanding access to the TV Plus Android app to Canada, the UK, Germany, and India this month, followed by France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and Austria sometime in the first half of this year.
