Samsung Electronics today announced that its TV PLUS service is now available in Thailand and Vietnam on 2016 Samsung Smart TV UHD Models. All other Smart TV models, including Full HD Smart TVs, will be supported by the end of June. The TV PLUS service enables users to find exciting video clips by simply moving to designated channels, instead of having to toggle between different apps.
As a part of the TV PLUS upgrade, users in Thailand and Vietnam will automatically receive four popular Korean Pop channels of CJ E&M’s ‘Tving TV’ including Awesome Singers (Channel 101/555), KPOP Boy Group Stage (Channel 102/556), KPOP Girl Group Stage (Channel 103/557), and M Countdown (Channel 104/558). Further ahead in 2016, Samsung plans to collaborate with additional global and local content partners to expand the channels and variety offered on the service.
“We are thrilled to offer TV PLUS and exciting K-POP content to our users in Thailand and Vietnam,” said WonJin Lee, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “TV PLUS is a new kind of Smart TV service that creates a better user experience, and enables consumers to watch their favorite programming in a more integrated way. We are committed to continuing to develop and launch new services that meet the unique needs of our Smart TV owners.”
