UKTV Play arrives on Samsung Smart TVs

UKTV has continued the rapid expansion of its on-demand app UKTV Play, with the service launching on Samsung Smart TVs.

With immediate effect, users of most Samsung TVs sold since 2015 (exceptions below) can now access thousands of hours of programmes from Dave, Drama, Really and Yesterday, including box sets and previews of new shows.

Highlights this month include the full series of brand-new Judge Romesh and premieres of Dr Christian Will See You Now and Inside the Ambulance which, until now, have only been available to pay TV customers. Episodes from the newest series of Taskmaster are also being previewed on UKTV Play seven days before they premiere on Dave.

UKTV Play has grown significantly year-on-year since launching in 2014 and the service continues to prove popular. Last year, it was the company's fastest growing brand with direct-to-consumer views up 75% compared with 2016. Only this month, the app was added to Freesat's on-demand service, following its rapid expansion across other connected devices.
