Having a Smart TV has the advantage that we can install some very useful applications, thanks to the fact that they have their own operating system, and hardware that is quite similar to Android TV devices. Today we offer you a list of the best applications that you can install on your Samsung Smart TV.
YouTube is the platform par excellence today to consume videos of all kinds, so we consider it an essential application for all owners of a Samsung Smart TV.
Installing this application will allow us to enjoy in a very comfortable way all the content uploaded by our favorite channels. In addition, we will have some additional options, such as subscribing to notifications so as not to miss a single detail, and we can even watch the videos in different resolutions, and with subtitles.
Netflix and HBO
Netflix and HBO are two services that offer us a multitude of series, movies and documentaries through streaming , which means that we will not have the need to download the content we want to see. These two services have adopted the role that video stores used to fulfill, making available a large amount of content for a fairly low price.
There is some content that is only available on one of the two platforms, so we believe that both complement each other perfectly. You can access each service for a monthly price of only € 7.99 , although you will have to pay a little more if you want to enjoy all its content in high resolution.
Rakuten TV has become the third in contention in content streaming services . Its catalog is increasingly extensive, making it easy for you to find content that is not available on other platforms. All its content is perfectly categorized and organized so that it is very easy for you to find it.
Additionally, Rakuten has teamed up with TV PLUS to offer a greater variety of 4K HDR content on Samsung Smart TVs. The alliance between these two services makes the possibilities offered by Rakuten in Samsung's smart TVs superior to other manufacturers.
Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video is the Internet commerce giant's content streaming service. The variety of content that we find on this platform is much lower than the options we have seen previously, but it has the great advantage that it is included within the Amazon Prime subscription.
The annual subscription to Amazon Prime is currently priced at approximately € 40 , including free shipping on all purchases of products sold by Amazon. This means that if you shop on Amazon quite often, you can enjoy this excellent content streaming platform for practically free.
Atresplayer is a platform created by the Atresmedia group , within which you will find most of the content that is broadcast on the different television channels of this group, including some of the most popular such as Antena 3, Neox, La Sexta and many more .
With this application you can use your Samsung Smart TV to watch the best content created by Atresmedia whenever you want. The use of this platform is completely free, although it also offers a subscription mode with some additional advantages.
MiTele is the Atresplayer equivalent of the Mediaset group , owner of many other popular channels such as Telecinco, Cuatro, Factoría de Ficción, Boing, Divinity and Energy. The use of this platform is free, but as with Atresplayer, it offers you the possibility of subscribing to obtain some advantages in exchange for a small monthly fee.
We continue talking about applications created by the most popular television groups. In this case, it is the application developed by Radio Televisión Española. RTVE is an application that you can install completely free of charge on your Samsung Smart TV, to enjoy the best content that is broadcast on La 1 and La 2.
In addition to the current content, you will find some gems such as the documentaries by Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente , Jara y Sedal and much more. In this case, it is a totally free service, which does not have any type of paid subscription with additional advantages.
Plex is an application that allows us to create a small multimedia server in our home . This means that we can use our Samsung Smart TV to access all the multimedia content that we have stored on a compatible device, such as a desktop computer or laptop.
To do so, you just have to install the application on both devices, configuring the one that contains your movies and series as a multimedia server with the Plex Media Server application. Plex has become one of the most used tools to make a DLNA connection between devices on the same local network.
Accuweather will allow you to be aware of the weather information without having to be aware of the news. You will simply have to open this application on your Samsung Smart TV, to know the weather for the next few days. It is one of the most used applications to know the time, due to the multitude of options it offers and its reliability.
K-Box is a fairly simple application that allows you to turn your Smart TV into karaoke , something that will be very useful when you want to celebrate a party with friends at home. Its database has more than 12000 songs, so that you will surely find one that you like.
We finish our list of the best applications that you can install on your Samsung Smart TV with Smart IPTV. It is a service that gives us access to different television channels that are broadcast over the Internet . This is a fairly simple way to increase the variety of content that you can enjoy on your television.
