Samsung TV Plus is a free, ad-supported streaming platform available on its consumer electronics giant’s smart televisions. Like other free platforms, Samsung has spent the last year building its library and is ending the year with several key additions, including channels dedicated to popular A&E shows. The service is built directly into newer Samsung TVs and is available on other products from the company and the web. Now Samsung TV Plus has added eight new free channels.

Recently, Samsung TV Plus has hit a major milestone after surpassing 350 live TV channels, making it one of the largest free streaming services in the U.S. with the addition of new channels such as Pickleballtv.
