Samsung Smart TVs kick off with The Football App

Samsung has announced that The Football App is available to download on Samsung Smart TVs from the 2011 and 2012 range. The Football App gives Samsung Smart TV owners access to coverage of over 40 football leagues and international events.

Press conferences, pre-match reports and player interviews are all included within the service which is available in five languages; English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

This is essentially a big screen version of developers motain’s iOS and Android apps, which let you keep track of the action from your pocket and have been downloaded six million times. The new app interface has been redrawn for the bigger screen which promises big easy to navigate panels.

“We’re happy to provide our successful smart phone app on Samsung’s market–leading TV platform as well and experience our premium football content through this attractive channel,’’ said Dr. Winfried Graf, Managing Director of motain.

Guy Kinnell, Marketing Director for TV, Samsung UK added:

“We know that sport content helps drives TV purchases and with this year set to be one of the biggest for UK sport, we’re excited that motain has brought our customers another great reason to maximise their sporting viewing via their Samsung Smart TV. From live tickers, commentaries, league standings and statistics, The Football App will give Smart TV viewers the latest news in UK and global football on the biggest and brightest screen in the house.’’
