Apple technology in your TVSamsung has announced that it will be integrating an iTunes app and Airplay 2 into its 2018 and 2019 TVs.

Films from Warner Bros, Walt Disney, Universal, Sony and Fox purchased through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Vudu could be viewed on the respective apps and devices and TVs that support the apps. Bixby will remain the only built-in assistant and will have deeper integration and more capabilities.

"We pride ourselves on working with top industry leaders to deliver the widest range of content services to our Smart TV platform", said Won-Jin Lee, executive vice president, service business of visual display at Samsung Electronics. Beyond that, LG/Vizio TVs will support Apple HomeKit, so you'll be able to control certain functions from iOS.

At a press event at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Sunday, Samsung unveiled its newest Micro LED 4K TV display - a screen almost half the size as "The Wall", which the company showed off a year ago at CES 2018.

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.

AirPlay 2 support is kind of important, too.

Meanwhile, AirPlay 2 will come to Samsung televisions in 190 countries, letting users stream music and video from iPhones, iPads and iTunes running on a desktop computer. Samsung's smart TVs now run on the company's own Tizen operating system (OS), whereas smart TVs from Sony and LG run on Android TV and webOS, respectively. It's possible that the iTunes movies and TV shows app will be revamped to include this in the near future. At CES 2019, another dimension has been added into their relationship as Samsung has announced that Apple iTunes is coming to its Smart TVs. Samsung's answer for CES 2019: a TV larger than most walls in your house, and a next-generation micro LED display that you can expand to any size or aspect ratio. That means while Apple is building an iTunes Movie and TV Show app for the Tizen OS, it will also have to build separate apps for other platforms.
