Hi

 

I currently have the UE49KS8000 Samsung TV and firware version 1242.  How do I get Apple TV and Airplay app to function on these versions.  Is there a firmware update to enable these applications?

 

If so how to I update the firmware?

 

Thanks

Hi @mggray100 , Unfortunately Apple Tv and Airplay will not be available for your Tv in the near future.  The  KS models were released in 2016 and pre 2018 Samsung Tvs do not support the app.

Samsung Tvs from 2018 onwards will now also  incorporate Apple Music  directly https://www.theverge.com/2020/4/23/21231790/samsung-smart-tv-apple-music-app-available
