This is why Apple has now changed its tune for rival Samsung | Check
New Delhi: The tech-giant Apple has announced, it will offer iTunes Movie and TV Show services, along with Airplay 2 technology, on Samsung’s smart TVs.
The move comes at a time when Apple is seeking new ways to increase its revenue. If Apple has to raise its revenues from content services, it can do so only by reaching out to more users.
According to Samsung, its smart TVs will get the iTunes Movie and TV Shows app, allowing customers in 190 countries to stream content directly from the TV. They will also be able to rent and buy content.
For existing iTunes customers, their content libraries will also be accessible on the TVs. Besides, adding Airplay 2 support will let customers stream content to their TVs from Apple products such as iPhones and iPads. The services will include photos, videos and podcasts.
Airplay is a proprietary technology used by Apple in its products and functions the same way as Bluetooth, but is usually faster.
Recently, Apple chief executive Tim Cook had said while talking about revenue made by Apple, “Apple services set new all-time records in multiple categories, including the App Store, Apple Music, Cloud Services, Apple Pay and the App Store’s search ad business.”
For Indian customers, where Apple has a small market, they will now be able to enjoy the Apple services on Samsung smart TVs.
