A whole new world of entertainment just opened up, because the Apple TV app is now available on select 2018 and 2019 Samsung TVs. Access your existing library of shows and movies, and find new programs to stream, buy, or rent. Find out how to sign into the app, how to stream content, which Samsung TVs are compatible, and learn about Apple TV + in this helpful guide.

Sign into the Apple TV app

Before you can sign into the Apple TV application, you must have an Apple Music or iTunes account. If you have never used Apple Music or iTunes, you need to set up an account in the Apple Music app on your phone or iTunes on your PC. 

  1. On your TV, navigate to and select the Apple TV app.

  2. Select Settings > Accounts > Sign In > Sign In On Mobile Device.

  3. Two sign-in options appear on your TV. Using your phone, either navigate to activate.apple.com and enter the code that is displayed on your TV, or scan the QR code that appears.

  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the sign in process.

    Note: For more information or if you need help signing in, visit Apple Support.

Stream movies and TV from Apple TV

  1. Select a category to browse available content, select Library to view content you already own, or select Search if you know what you are looking for.

  2. Scroll through the available titles and select one that you would like, then select Buy or Rent.

    Note: You may need to enter your Apple ID password to complete your purchase.

  3. Select Play to start playing the video.
