What if Apple Music App is not available on your Samsung Smart TV

Apple Music became available on Samsung Smart TVs released from 2018 through 2020 on Apr. 23, 2020  in over 100 countries, making Samsung the first TV brand to integrate Apple Music on its Smart TV Platform. Owners of Samsung Smart TVs (models from 2018 through 2020) can download Apple Music from the Samsung Smart TV App Store. Sign in to an existing account with their Apple ID, or begin the subscription process right from their TV. Subscribers can stream over 60 million songs ad-free, watch top music videos, and explore thousands of playlists curated by world-class music experts and tastemakers.

Apple Music app is available on below Samsung TV models:

However, if your Samsung TV is released before 2018, you are not on the lucky list. But you can still stream Apple Music on your older Samsung TV with other ways.

You can cast Apple Music from your phone or tablet if your Samsung TV is Chromecast connected or download Apple Music to MP3 and then play them on old Samsung TV via USB drive.

Apple Music songs you downloaded directly can't be play from USB drive since Apple Music songs are in DRM proteced M4P format . So before enjoying them on Samsung Smart TV, you need to download them to DRM-free MP3 format. Here we will recommend Ondesoft iTunes Converter , which helps you easily remove DRM from Apple Music songs and covnert M4P to MP3, M4A, etc.
