With great video on-demand apps, there can always be something to watch.

Whether it's sports, movies, drama, kids programming, news or TV shows, there's an app for just about every viewing taste, so everyone in your household can be sure to find something to watch.


Some video on-demand apps are preloaded to compatible Samsung Smart TVs, while others can be easily downloaded from the Smart Hub. 2 There is a mix of free, pay-per-view and subscription-based video streaming apps, and with new apps added periodically you can have access to an expanding library of entertainment.1
