Apple is bringing iTunes Movies & TV Shows to Samsung Smart TVs this Spring.

Talk about unlikely bedfellows: Samsung has struck a deal with Apple to include an iTunes Movies and TV Shows app on its 2018 and 2019 smart TVs.

With this new iTunes Movies and TV Shows app, customers can access their existing iTunes library and browse the iTunes Store to buy or rent movies and TV episodes. The iTunes Movies and TV Shows app will also work seamlessly with Samsung's Smart TV services such as Universal Guide, Bixby and Search. They added that this new iTunes support is the first in the industry.

Correction AirPlay support will be coming to Vizio TVs.

Clearly this is quite the deal of Samsung and Apple with the likelihood of a lot of money changing hands for access to be allowed.

Apple's Airplay 2 is the preferred option for sharing content from an iPhone or iPad with other devices.

Apple has always been highly protective of its ecosystem, which is a double-edged sword for consumers - it helps ensure things work smoothly across Apple devices, but locks them into Apple's services and devices.

The move represents a concession from the U.S. company, which had previously encouraged iTunes users to buy its £179 Apple TV box as the best way to watch material purchased from its iTunes Store. It looks much more like Apple's next step in becoming more of a media company.

This announcement raises more questions than answers, so tonight's Samsung TV press briefing should be very interesting. Previous reports cited plans to give away content to device owners, which would be distributed on a new streaming service launching in the first half of 2019. Considering that Apple does not have a large format display of its own, its about time that there is a way to do this without paying for extra and unnecessary hardware.

Apple hasn't announced it yet, but it's largely expected to launch a TV service that combines free and paid content later this year.
