Movistar TV launched on Samsung smart TVs

Tuesday 2 December 2014 | 14:56 CET | News
Telefonica's Movistar TV pay-TV service can now be accessed on latest-generation Samsung smart TVs without a decoder thanks to a dedicated app, dubbed Movistar TV Ready. The app has been launched four months after Telefonica signed an agreement with Samsung to include Movistar TV on Samsung smart TVs. The new app will only be able to function with the latest 2014 generation of smart TVs, allowing users to do without receivers or decoders, record programmes in HD and even watch different Movistar TV channels on different smart TVs thanks to Samsung's Multiroom technology.
