Pretty interesting:

https://news.samsung.com/us/samsung-smart-tvs-launch-itunes-movies-tv-shows-support-airplay-2-spring-2019/

The market seems to be so brutal that even Apple is apparently abandoning their AppleTV.

Sadly, it seems like this will be exclusively on Samsung for the time being...

Not quite the same.

On the named tv’s (from Samsung) this is a part of the tv software.

With the Eclipse it is part of the B&O provided streaming funcionallity (the Sound Center).

MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

From the samsung press materiel it seems that Airplay is not only for sound but also for pictures and video which might be the first time Apple license others to do.

According to another press release from the CES, AirPlay 2 will also be supported by some other «big » brands (no brand cited precisely), but iTunes app is a Samsung exclusivity

Yes indeed, this is obviously a strategic move ahead of Apple launching it's video streaming see.

A big move as Apple tries to further build out its services division, and be less iPhone reliant.

And this is pretty darned useful. Means you can stream from your iOS device to your TV. Your iPhone just becomes a handy visual remote.

Can't see Apple ditching their Apple TV though. Plenty of devices need that third-party support.

@moxxey you are right, only (!) Samsung is getting to use that special app for iTunes video. It is quite another "hell froze over" moment for Apple fans... ;-) (remember iTunes for PC?). So it is indeed good to have Apple TV for the foreseeable future for other (and older than 2019!) TV (do not count on it for long, though!).

However, good to hear that other brands at least get the AirPlay video streaming. I can't wait to hear prices for the rollable LG OLED, that would definitely be my new TV, even though the base looks kind of big (but it is at the same time a fantastic soundbar, apparently).

Too bad Samsung is not up to par when it comes to picture quality. Oh, and I so wish B&O would at least continue to be a part of these new developments!!! :-( Even Sennheiser announced their new Soundbar...

Samsungs new micro leds are something else though. Self emmisive too and they don’t really degrade, atleast not at the rate oled does. I wonder when the testing starts how much closer the gap is going to be now samsung is able to do full black/100% off and it’ll have a 100% coverage of the dcp3 colourspace in 4k at any luminance

New: Beolab 50's, Beolab 18's, Beovision eclipse, Beosound 9000 mk3, Beosound 1 Bronze edition, Beoplay M3.

Old: Beolab 1's, beolab 2, beovision 10-46, overture 2300, beolab 8000's, beolab 4000's, beovision avant 32" etc. etc.

:P Hardly.. But giving manufacturers the possibility to add AirPlay 2, Homekit and iTunes Store means advantages for Apple since for now most systems are easy to use with Android phones and not iOS devices due to the lack of AirPlay. Now they give TV manufacturers the possibility to add this, making a ecosystem with iOS devices and different TVs a simpler solution without cables. It also means people can now rent movies from iTunes store which of course is revenue making for Apple. More possibilities to rent out movies without having to buy a separate box. 

Apple TV is great but most TV´s are thin, and we already struggle to fit them inside our B&O TVs - since we neither want to see them. Im confident Apple will continue selling the Apple TV due to its amazing user interface, speed, smoothness and app support in the IOS world. This news is simply extra ways to stream, rent and to use homekit devices. I believe the HomeKit implementation will still require an Apple hub like Apple TV or an iPad, but HomeKit integration at least means that we will be able to turn our TVs on by our phone, apple watch or computer, or connected switches etc. That I believe is really, really cool! For example, today I use my GPS fence to turn the lights on depending on time of day when I come home, and turn off when I leave. Now this would be possible with the TV too. Either schedule or act on action. 

It is not exclusive for Samsung either, LG, Vizio, Sony etc has already promised support and more will certainly come.
