A number of new series are introduced in the update, including Top Gear, Law & Order Special Victims Unit, NCIS, and Chicago Fire.

Along with the new shows, TV Plus is gaining two unique Samsung-owned channels: Samsung Showcase and Ride or Drive, which are both focused toward "concerts, events, and special programming."

Additionally, it is collaborating with A&E to introduce Home.Made.Nation, a brand-new channel devoted to home improvement.

Furthermore, despite the fact that Samsung already offers a number of regional and national news channels, such as ABC News Live, CBS News, NBC News Now, and others.

The company claims it hopes to expand local news and weather coverage to more US regions.

It also plans to use "new and expanded agreements" with Lionsgate, Vice Media, and other companies to increase its video-on-demand collection by the year 2023.

Samsung TV Plus has been around since it was first introduced in 2015.
