Telefonica, Samsung partner on set-top free TV

Tuesday 15 September 2015 | 08:37 CET | News
Samsung and Telefonica have taken advantage of their appearance at IBC 2015 in Amsterdam to announce a set-top free TV partnership in connection with the operator's Movistar+ IPTV service. Telefonica is currently providing Movistar+ on select 2014 and 2015 Samsung Smart TVs and will now expand the service to future Samsung Smart TV models. Consumers can enjoy Telefonica's IPTV service on their Samsung Smart TV by downloading the Movistar+ app, giving subscribers instant access to the complete offer of premium channels and videos available on demand without the need for a separate set-top box.
