Samsung will partner with NBC and Univision to launch a streaming platform for its flagship Android TV device, the S4, that can stream live and recorded TV content.
The new platform will launch with a “live TV” offering and a live video app that can be used on any Android TV platform.
The new app, dubbed Live TV, is expected to be the first of many Android TV offerings for the device that will debut in the near future.
The app will let users watch live, taped, and archived TV content, such as sports, documentaries, and documentaries.
Samsung said the app will have content from NBC News, ABC News, ESPN, CBS, Fox, CNN, and MSNBC.
The network, which is owned by NBCUniversal, is the largest U.S. news network.
Univision also will be the second-largest U.s. network, according to Nielsen.
The app will be a direct competitor to Samsung’s S4 streaming media offering, which Samsung acquired in April 2018 for an estimated $1.9 billion.
The company announced in September 2018 that it had sold the S2 streaming media device and the S3 mobile TV device to Microsoft for $9 billion in cash and stock.
