Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Samsung Smart TV

From working at home to working up a sweat, you might be surprised by just how much you can do with your Samsung Smart TV. That’s because, in addition to offering next-level viewing experiences, Samsung’s newest TVs come packed with innovations designed to amplify our enjoyment of all kinds of content.

The TVs’ immersive displays are just as suitable for streaming heart-pumping workouts as they are for catching up on the latest binge-worthy show. And with simple controls for managing apps and connected devices, they make it that much easier to stay productive when working from home.

Read on for our tips on getting the most out of your Samsung Smart TV.

1. Enjoy Free Live TV


With Samsung TV Plus 1, Smart TV users get instant access over 50 channels spanning news, sports, entertainment and more – so they’ll never be at a loss when sitting down to stream.

Samsung TV Plus is 100% free, and comes pre-installed on all 2016 to 2020 Samsung Smart TVs. No downloads, additional devices, or credit cards required. With a simple internet connection, you can pick up where you left off on recently watched shows, discover new ones, and access video-on-demand services with ease.

Samsung TV Plus has also expanded its movie offerings with the launch of channel Rakuten TV. With its growing linear TV offering, Samsung TV Plus has something to suit every interest. Thanks to its diverse range of channels, from sci-fi movies and biopics to action sports and feature films, there’s a channel for every viewer.

2. Work Up a Sweat


As much as we might enjoy our commute-free routines when working or studying from home, it’s still important to stay active throughout the day – even if that means turning your living room into a workout studio.

Luckily for Samsung Smart TV users, at-home workout videos catering to virtually all interests and abilities are just a few taps away.

Simply click on the exercise service of your choice, choose a workout to stream, and get started. It’s as simple as that. With the TVs’ high resolutions, you’ll never miss a step while working up a sweat. And with a variety of services available and more on the way, it’s easy to find the content you need to take your fitness routine to the next level. The Multi View 2 feature lets you split your screen –  you can watch a workout on one side and use your phone’s camera to show your positioning on the other side.

Samsung’s new Samsung Health service offers a simple solution to satisfy Smart TV users’ fitness needs. Samsung Health combines free fitness content from world-class partners including the popular meditation app, Calm, as well as, Fitplan, Echelon and Jillian Michaels. Compatible with 2018-2019 Samsung Smart TVs, the apps make it easy for users to workout at home.3

3. Work More Comfortably From Home


In addition to offering a range of options to help keep users active and entertained at home, Samsung Smart TVs make it that much easier to stay productive when it’s time to get to work.

In 2019, Samsung introduced its exclusive Remote Access feature. Available on the company’s latest Smart TVs, it allows users to remotely access and manage their personal computer(s) through their TV, regardless of their PC’s location.4

Remote Access also offers a wide variety of cloud-based documentation services that can make it easier for students to continue studying at home. They can even use a web browser to view online courses and live lectures on their TV’s spacious screen, so they won’t miss a single note or detail.

Remote Access also comes equipped with Wi-Fi Direct, which facilitates seamless screen sharing between TVs and PCs, mobile phones and tablets. This versatile feature opens the door for users to enjoy a wide range of content on their TV’s larger screen.

4. Find Some Peace and Quiet


Even the most media-savvy among us occasionally find ourselves needing to take a break from staring at screens to enjoy some peace and quiet instead. Thankfully, Samsung TVs’ Ambient Mode can help us do just that.

Ambient Mode enables Smart TVs to foster a relaxing environment by displaying works of art, family photos and other calming content when turned off. For those times when you’d like to completely tune out, you can program Ambient Mode to match the wallpaper or background of the space behind your TV, so your screen will blend seamlessly into its surroundings.

Transform your TV into your own personal photo gallery with QLED displays’ revolutionary image technology. You can rest assured that your favorite snaps will be showcased in the full, high-res quality they deserve.
