Can you get Samsung TV Plus?

Samsung’s streaming service is free and integrated into all 2016 through 2022 Samsung Smart TVs and Galaxy devices. It’s also available on select Family Hub refrigerators (2.0 models from 2017 and later).

To see if you have access, look for the Samsung TV Plus icon on the first screen of any Samsung Smart TV or launch the app on any Samsung mobile device.

Our sponsor T-Mobile has something in store, too

Subscribers to most T-Mobile Magenta and Magenta Max plans get a Netflix subscription at no extra cost. Now you can add a year of Apple TV+ for free on top of that.

The plan is currently being offered to T-Mobile Magenta Max customers and starts on August 31. Following your free year of Apple TV+, you’ll have to pay $4.99 monthly to keep it. This is the same amount you’d pay for Apple’s streaming service on its own, so enjoy that first free year and see if it’s worth keeping. Either way, you get to keep your Netflix subscription.

Already an Apple TV+ subscriber? Redeem T-Mobile’s offer, and your payment will be put on hold for a year. Pretty sweet!
