Samsung 4K TV owners now have access to a wealth of extra content on the house, thanks to a new freebie the South Korean tech giant has just launched. Earlier this year the leading 4K TV maker launched Smart Start, a promotion that bundled in over £200 worth of subscriptions to popular apps such as YouTube Premium, Britbox and lossless music streaming service TIDAL. And it’s emerged this week that a new channel – called NextUp – has now been bundled in with Samsung Smart Start.
This service offers “the very best of the UK’s comedy scene”, where you can tune in to live performances from the likes of Reginald D. Hunter and Josie Long, plus on-demand specials from performers such as Ed Byrne.
Access to NextUp is usually priced at £6.99 per month, or just under £24 for the entire year.
And with Samsung Smart Start you’ll now get three months of membership for the comedy streaming service thrown in for free.
This freebie will be available to anyone that purchased a 2020 and 2021 Samsung Smart TV and activates it between 30 June 2021 and 6 January 2022.
This means if you managed to pick up a Samsung Smart TV at a bargain price during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales – or are planning to grab one in the Boxing Day sales – you’ll be treated to an extra reward.
Speaking about the news Sarah Henley, the chief operating officer of NextUp, said: “We’re really excited to be part of Samsung’s Smart Start offering. Our mission is to be the home of live comedy, and this partnership goes a long way to making that happen.
“Members will be able to view incredible specials from the most exciting upcoming names in comedy, and live gigs from the best clubs in Britain from the comfort of their sofas – unfiltered, unedited and with no queue for the toilet! And now, more than ever, people really do need a laugh!”
While Deep Halder, the UK head of TV/AV retail and content services for Samsung Electronics, added: “We’re thrilled to partner with NextUp in the latest development of our Smart Start offering. Championing the best of British comedy talent, as well as enabling first-rate entertainment for our customers to enjoy watching, is exactly what we set out to achieve with Smart Start. We’re looking forward to continually finding new ways and partners to deliver premium and dynamic entertainment experiences for our customers.”
