Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has announced its 2018, 2019 and 2020 Smart TVs will have access to six new health and wellness apps in partnership with leading fitness brands – barre3, Calm, Echelon, Fitplan, Jillian Michaels Fitness and obé Fitness. Later this year, these apps will be part of Samsung Health, a comprehensive fitness platform for Samsung Smart TVs originally announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January.
Samsung and its partners are bringing consumers early access to over 5,000 hours of free at-home wellness content right now, due in part to the current coronavirus outbreak forcing people to alter their workout routines.
“As our community grapples with unprecedented disruptions to their daily routines, it is important for homebound consumers to have access to free high-quality health and wellness offerings,” says Salek Brodsky, vice president of strategic partnerships and business development for Samsung Electronics.
“Our partnership with these premium brands redefines the boundaries of what free streaming services can provide, and we look forward to enhancing these offerings by bringing a full Samsung Health experience to our TVs later this year.”
Over 250 instructive videos are available now – from barre classes and guided meditations, to celebrity-led personal training sessions – for Samsung Smart TV consumers to access from home.

The health and wellness apps will be fully integrated into Samsung Health, which will launch on all 2020 Samsung Smart TVs, and will expand upon the suite of apps available today. The company says Samsung Health will provide consumers with more alternatives to traditional exercise options like gyms and group classes, and adapt to each consumer’s unique schedule – allowing it to become a crucial pillar of consumers’ daily routines for years to come.
According to Samsung, the apps are available now on all 2018 and 2019 Smart TV models and will be available on all 2020 Samsung models by summertime in the United States and Canada.
