Samsung’s brilliant TV Plus service has been serving up free content to television owners for over five years. The popular app now comes pre-installed on all new tellies from the firm and can also be downloaded onto most modern smart TVs that were made after 2016. Once launched, you’ll find a swathe of shows from platforms such as Vevo Pop, CNN, SuperToons TV and the Comedy Channel without paying a penny to view.
In fact, there’s a total of 94 free channels with no sign-ups asking for your email address or annoying subscriptions raiding your bank account each month.

Now, in a major change, Samsung is bringing this service to more of its fans and they won’t need a TV to tune in.

From today it will be available in the Galaxy Store and Google Play Store for select Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

That means those with one of the latest devices from Samsung will be able to watch shows like Hot in Cleveland, Russell Howard’s Good News and Taskmaster Best Bits straight on their portable devices.

TV Plus on first launched on smartphones in the US last year and, due to its success, UK and Europe is now being treated to the update as well.

To download the Samsung TV Plus app, users can simply search and download the app from Galaxy Store or Google Play Store to tap into hours of free content.

Samsung TV Plus has become one of the fastest-growing streaming services in the world following its debut in 2015 and that’s probably not hard to dispute considering the amount of content that’s available without reaching for your wallet.

“The growth of Samsung TV Plus has everything to do with the quality of the content, the ease of access and the multi-screen experiences offered,” said Sang Kim, SVP of Product & Marketing for Samsung Electronics. “We are working hard to deliver more to our customers wherever they are – including our mobile offering.”

Germany and other European countries, which invested billions of dollars in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to get cheaper Russian gas, still support the project despite mounting US pressure and threats of sanctions.

RT’s Boom Bust spoke to author and host of the Economic Update, Professor Richard Wolff, to discuss the situation. He says Nord Stream 2 was spared from the latest round of sanctions on Russia because the US was afraid to offend the Europeans, who already refused to cave in to the pressure from the previous administration of Donald Trump.

“They are not receptive to the kinds of pressure tactics of the past, where they used to fold the minute the American president said something. Those days, I think, are over and we’re seeing it around the Nord Stream pipeline,” Wolff said.

He also noted that the actions of the US are only pushing Russia and China closer, with both countries becoming more self-sufficient. This puts the US in a difficult position, according to Wolff, as the two states are working together to lure third world countries away from American influence.
