Hi,

Samsung are usually one of the best to get apps on their TVs, however, a few that are new or existing are not available, can Samsung see about getting these added? Who would I direct it to? (UK)

Apps:

- CBS UK Catchup / Legend

- Viaplay

- PBS America

@Members_F3fpvE4: Support and availability of third party applications on our TVs is down to the developer themselves and, in some instances, this can be regionally specific. Have you tried reaching out to the developers themselves to see if the apps are available to UK Samsung Smart TV owners?

PBS America is available on  Samsung Tv Plus (4246) in addition to Freeview, Sky and Virgin.    https://www.pbsamerica.co.uk/about/ 

Tv Plus channels https://www.samsung.com/uk/tvs/smart-tv/samsung-tv-plus/all-channels/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Hi @0adbylad1 , AndrewL is correct.

 

Unpacking a little more of what lies behind that "Support and availability of third party applications on our TVs is down to the developer themselves" to share some insight: The situation isn't a matter of simply installing apps as per desire. Apps need to be built for specific models/OS platforms. The decision making behind why an app developer would or wouldn’t in a particular case has a variety of factors, ranging from market demand through to technical considerations (i.e. whether an OS platform or hardware is capable of delivering the best end-user experience for that app).
