Discovery+ Available on More Devices

Discovery+, the on-demand subscription service from Discovery, has been added to more devices, and is coming soon to others.

The service can now be found on Amazon Fire TV and Samsung Smart TVs, in both the UK and Ireland. It has also been confirmed that the service will be added to Roku and Vodafone devices later in the year.

For Amazon Fire TV devices, the service is available through an app that can be downloaded from the app store. The app will be pre-installed on new Samsung TVs, and is a featured app on 2017 and newer Samsung Smart TVs. Compatibility with older Samsung Smart TVs is unconfirmed.

New Short-throw Projector from Samsung

Following in the footsteps of LG, Samsung has launched a new ultra short-throw projector. The new projector can be placed just in front of the projection surface, making it ideal for home use.

The projector is available in two sizes, 120″ (LSP7T), and 130″ (LSP9T). Both can deliver 4K image resolutions using laser technology, with the LSP9T also having High Dynamic Range 10+ certification.

Both have a ‘Filmmakers Mode’, and come with Samsung’s Smart TV options.

Disney+ Performs Poorly on Samsung TVs

A new study from enhanced TV agency Terravolt suggests that users are unhappy with the performance of Disney’s streaming service Disney+ on Samsung’s TVs with the Tizen operating system.

Among the issues reported are long loading times for preview images, jerky scrolling, and an un-intuitive keyboard which can over-complicated the log-in process.

The problems do appear to be isolated to the Tizen powered Samsung Smart TVs, although it is unclear whether the problems are caused by the TVs, or the Disney+ app itself.
