Countless consumer electronics are shown at CES every year, but TVs are undeniably one of the biggest stars of the show. Samsung is no stranger to this, as its TVs always manage to grab a substantial portion of the spotlight. There is no doubt the company will have a handful of new TVs this year as well, but that is only one part of the entertainment products it plans to debut, as the company announced it will be showing three new Smart TV services at the show, all of which aim to help personalize your viewing experience.
"At Samsung, one of our top priorities is ensuring that we are closely in tune with what consumers want and need from their smart devices and electronics," Samsung Electronics Visual Display Vice President Won Jin Lee said in a statement. "With that in mind, we continue to innovate our Smart TV offering in order to provide the content experiences that our customers have come to know and expect from Samsung."
These three services -- Music, Sports, and TV Plus -- each focus on a unique part of the home entertainment world. The first, Music ties together music from eight different app partners, including Spotify, iHeartRadio, Napster, Deezer, Sirius XM, Vevo, Melon, and Bugs, but that's not all. First, it can identify songs from live TV, but can also make recommendations based on your listening habits across all apps, which you will see in the preview section of Samsung's Smart Hub interface.
Sports aims to make finding your favorite games easier. Instead of flipping from channel to channel, the Sports service gathers them all together in one place, letting you skip right to watching. At the same time, information like schedules, scores, and more will be displayed in the same place.
