TVPlayer to be preinstalled on Samsung Tabs

Online streaming service TVPlayer has announced that its service will be among the first streaming video platforms to be pre-installed on all new Samsung tablets.

The complete rollout will be available on 24 variants of six tablet versions to over 700,000 devices in the UK over the next 12 months: Galaxy View, Galaxy Tab S2, Galaxy Tab Active, Galaxy Tab A, Galaxy Tab E and Galaxy Tab S.

Two variants of both the Galaxy Tab S2 and the Galaxy Tab A 2016 are the first to be currently deployed with the TVPlayer pre-installed app.

TVPlayer offers web-based access to all major free-to-air channels, plus an optional selection of premium channels including Eurosport and MTV for £4.99 a month.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that TVPlayer would soon offer legal live streams of ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, ITVBe, CITV, More4, 4seven, 5STAR, 5USA and Spike following a deal with the relevant broadcasters.

The service is available online at TVPlayer.com and via a number of smart TVs and boxes including Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and via iOS and Android Apps. A Roku app is in development.
