Last modified : Apr 04. 2018

AllShare Play is now Samsung Link. Once AllShare Play is updated the logo and service name will change to Samsung Link. Continue to log-in with your Samsung Account to access your pictures, videos, and documents previously stored on AllShare Play. Samsung Link enables users to access & play content saved on other devices over a wireless access point as well as over the internet.


AllShare Play is one of the added new features in BD-E8500. This is an evolution of the network streaming function from previous Samsung models. It is not just about streaming content over a network from DLNA-certified devices; this added feature consolidates all of your content into one place, including recorded TV programmes, files stored on USB devices or the hard disk and social networking services like Facebook. This is divided into Videos, Photos, Music, Recorded TV and My List, which shows recently played files, new items and playlists.


With the addition of cloud storage, you can share some of your favourite media on the move with Allshare Play. You can access a BD-E8500A Blu-ray player with compatible devices.
