Samsung launched its Samsung TV Plus streaming service last year, and according to the latest report by SamMobile, the service might be extended to Galaxy users in the near future. The Korean tech giant is reportedly working on delivering the Samsung TV Plus-like functionality via a mobile app.

Samsung’s official streaming service is currently available free-of-charge exclusively through its Smart TVs released in 2016 and later in the USA and Canada. Hence, it is likely that the mobile app will also be available exclusively for Galaxy devices.

According to the report, users will be able to watch Live TV channels as well as access Video-on-demand (VOD) content. As of now, the streaming service offers channels including beIN Sports Extra, Bon Appétit, CBS News, Crime 360, fubo Sports Network, Fuse, Kitchen Nightmares, Lively Place, Outside TV+, Reelz, Tastemade, The Design Network, VEVO, Yahoo Finance, and a few more.

Samsung’s TV Plus streaming service is one of its tricks to give it a leg up on the competition. Hence, making it free of cost makes sense. For now, it is supported through advertisements, and the same is expected from the upcoming mobile service.

So far, the company has not officially confirmed the news; however, according to SamMobile, the news has been leaked by their internal sources.

There is a high chance that the expansion of Samsung’s proprietary streaming service – via Samsung TV plus – is influenced by the rise in media consumption as people around the globe go through the pandemic induced lockdown.

It is important to note that Samsung has been working on expanding its A-series range with an array of options depending on the specs’ requirement and affordability of the customer. The company launched Samsung Galaxy A30s and Galaxy A50s last month and has now unveiled the Galaxy A20s as a minor upgrade over its predecessor.

Galaxy A20s is an entry-level smartphone with a few downgrades and some improvements on the hardware side. It costs around Rs. 30,000 in Pakistan and for the price, one might argue that the phone quite worth it. Featuring the same design elements as its predecessor, A30, the smartphone comes in four colors: black, blue, green and red.

The 2017 Population census-estimated Karachi's population around 14 million, but this number is politically contentious, with many locals estimating a number closer to 22 million. It has a huge uncontrolled population growth that, accompanied by poor planning, has meant infrastructure - water supply, sewerage, electricity, gas, communications – is proving insufficient to cope with its growing population needs.
