  • iTunes and AirPlay 2 Coming to Samsung Smart TVs

That approach has helped persuade customers to stick with Apple products, but it also limits the reach of subscription services like Apple Music and iCloud at a time when the company needs that extra revenue more than ever. Samsung, LG, and Vizio have all announced that their 2019 Smart TVs will have AirPlay 2 support and while those TVs have yet to hit the market, you can get a head start by planning. With this, the user can take advantage to expand any size they desire, even at an irregular 9x3, 1x7 or 5x1 screen sizes.

Coming in the wake of Apple bringing Apple Music to Amazon's Echo speakers, Samsung Smart TVs may be the first to get an iTunes app and AirPlay 2 support, but they're unlikely to be the last.

Among Samsung's other TV announcements at CES was the unveiling of a new range of QLED 8K TVs, including a 98in (249 cm) model.

Additionally, the lineup will support AirPlay 2 in 190 countries, enabling iPhone and iPad users to cast content to their Samsung smart TVs.

It has announced several high-profile deals for original television content, including a forthcoming show with Oprah Winfrey, but has not yet said how it plans to distribute that content or when its service will launch.

Meanwhile Samsung stated: "In an industry first, a new iTunes Movies and TV Shows app will debut only on Samsung Smart TVs in more than 100 countries". With AirPlay 2 added to SmartCast, Vizio covers both major ways to show video from your mobile device on your TV.

"Services generated over $10.8bn in revenues during the quarter, growing to a new quarterly record in every geographic segment, and we are on track to achieve our goal of doubling the size of this business from 2016 to 2020".

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.
