Samsung smart TVs get iTunes movies and TV shows, Airplay 2 support

Apple has been snatching up original content and is expected to launch its service later this year.

It may involve teaming up with some bitter rivals.

And, they're bezel free, meaning the entire display is borderless.Samsung has also added new features to Ambient Mode, which lets the TV blend in with its environment when not in use. At CES 2019, another dimension has been added into their relationship as Samsung has announced that Apple iTunes is coming to its Smart TVs. That severely limits users' access to movies and shows they purchased from Apple, considering all the new ways people can consume digital content today (smart TVs, set-top boxes, mobile apps, to name a few).

The Video industry is an ever-changing world where big ideas come along daily.

Yoon Lee, Samsung's SVP of Content and Services, Product Innovation, introduced the robotics platform at the end the company's keynote, echoing Steve Jobs' famous prompt of "one more thing". Samsung hasn't announced a list of carmakers or cars just yet, but more details should show up as the months go by and we get closer to the launch of 5G networks in markets like the US and South Korea. It's also likely that Apple will strike up similar deals with other video platform providers.

LG will be adding AirPlay 2 support in its range of 2019 televisions that it announced at CES.

After winning the MVP previous year , Harden is making a pretty strong case for a second one. Harden finished the game with a triple-double - 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds.

AirPlay 2 support is kind of important, too.

"If it's not an app on Roku/Fire TV/smart TVs, no one is going to bother to figure out how to watch it", Wolk said.

The Samsung deal could be a step toward Apple distributing content to devices made by others. Apple CEO Tim Cook said last week in his revised outlook that services generated $10.8 billion in fiscal Q1 and that Apple plans to double the size of its service business from 2016 to 2020.

"Our non-iPhone businesses have less exposure to emerging markets, and the vast majority of services revenue is related to the size of the installed base, not current period sales".

It's been a big 24 hours for AirPlay, a feature of Apple's ecosystem that is often overlooked.
