Samsung TV Plus, an exclusive video streaming service for Samsung’s smartphones, tablets, and televisions, enables users to watch more than 1,600 channels from around the world for free. However, Samsung announced on its community website that on December 14, 2022, seven channels will be removed from the service.
These seven channels are Mini Commandos TV, Chinese TV Zhangjiagang, tvN THE K2, tvN Mine, tvN Chungil Electronics Matsuri, tvN Street Food Fighter, tvN Grandpas Over Flowers, and Chinese TV Zhangjiagang. Additionally, the post states that Samsung will “add a variety of new channels each month” to the linear video streaming service, but the company has not yet provided further details.
Samsung redesigned the TV Plus service with a new logo and animations in August. Importantly, a massive amount of new content was added, including The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Top Gear, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Chicago Fire, and NCIS, among others. In partnership with Vice Media, Lionsgate, and others, Samsung plans to double its VoD library by 2023.
Samsung TV Plus is completely free, unlike the majority of other video streaming services, including Discovery+, Disney+, Netflix, Prime Video, and YouTube TV. Users can access the service without providing credit/debit card information or even an email address. In recent years, the service has attracted a large number of users worldwide.
