Free AppleTV and AirPlay 2 update for Samsung TV’s 2018 & 2019 Now Live!

272
Posted 19th May
Just seen this firmware and App has now been released for free for recent makes of Samsung TVs.

So this means you now can watch content from your IPhone, IPad, Mac or ITunes Store with ease using the Airplay function.

Was tempted to buy an Apple TV 4K unit this weekend as I thought it would later on this year this update would come out so I have now saved myself nearly £200 with this update.

The App can be found in the Samsung App Store on the TV’s home screen.

Update - If you are having issues with AirPlay trying updating your IPhone to the latest iOS 12.3 Thanks @F_F22

How on earth is this a deal?!


It’s a free update which gives Samsung TVs the functionality of Apple TV & AirPlay 2 then buying the separate unit.

So I’m just letting others know that this Free update is now out as it was supposed to be out later on this year.

I know what this is, IT IS NOT a deal!


Glad you do. Others might not so just letting people know this Free update is now out instead of them buying a separate unit to use it.

Thanks for the heads up - lots of negativity here so I’m voting hot

Now if only LG would do this for their 2018/2019 OLED screens

I doubt anyone would be buying a separate unit if they didn’t know about the update. Someone who knows they have AirPlay 2 on the TV does know when that’s being updated. Good luck!

I can't believe people are actually voting hot on this.
does this give full atv functionality and allow you to load apps such as infuse on it?

This will be a deal if Samsung will give away an iPhone to stream from.
Thanks for info - very helpful, Great Deal!
Its information more than a deal but appreciated it nonetheless.

Thanks
Thanks for posting this.
An update is considered a deal? That's a stretch, regardless of any new features. This is not a saving as updates never come at a cost! Lol

Is there a way of making the picture fill the entire screen? All of my purchased content plays like this
Wow amazing deal, I was too looking at purchasing a separate unit - this has saved me some money
Can’t seem to use the airplay function from NU7100 series, if anyone knows a fix feel free to help.

That's what it's supposed to look like, it's a cinematic aspect ratio. If you filled the whole screen, either the edges would be cut off or the image would be stretched.

Try the ASPECT button on your main remote, or it could be a box with arrows pointing outwards from the centre. You'll lose some of the sides though, or it will stretch it.

You need to make sure your iOS is 12.3.

It does work as I have an NU7100. NU was 2018 and is included. Check for an update on the tv in case it isn’t auto update.

Play a random video on safari and you should see an airplay button and when you click it, you should see Samsung 7 series. You could also go into control centre, force touch the screen mirroring and see is it shows Samsung 7 series.
I have a UE40NU7120 bought last October and there’s no update shown for me.

What's even more surprising is the mods have left it here

just spoke to Samsung regarding my UE40NU7120:

  • Hello, Paul! Thank you for patiently waiting. As I've checked it on our end that unfortunately, this TV model is not included for the compatibility of Apple TV app. The TV models that are compatible with this app is NU7100 and above and all of our 2019 TV models.

    10:56
  • is the NU7120 below a NU7100 then?

    10:57
  • No, it's just there are some feature limitations to NU7120 for this application. The TV models that are not included is NU7120 and NU7121.

Be nice if we got Dolby vision also but can't see that happening.

screen mirroring works
So nothing for old samsung TVs
What about Sony TVs?
This is a great deal but is there any apps for KDL TVs from Sony
unfortunately, my samsung tv is from 2017... Does Apple TV app support UHD content from iTunes too or is it for HD streaming only?

@jezzuk should probably add that need to update iOS to 12.3 in the description
