Samsung has unveiled a new Samsung Smart TV user experience, featuring a refreshed Smart Hub user interface and new Samsung Smart Control remote.

Samsung said they will provide consumers with easy access to their favorite content – all in one place and with a single remote control.

The new Smart Hub interface “represents a shift away from multiple content sources and devices, to one integrated content and services platform”.

Users will be able to switch between linear content, OTT content, as well as other connected devices – including video game consoles and Blu-ray players.

Samsung Smart Control

The Samsung Smart Control remote serves as a single control unit for nearly all devices connected to a Samsung Smart TV.

For a TV with more than three external devices connected, the Smart Control remote will consolidate multiple remote controls into one.

Using the Tizen platform, the new Smart Control remote provides quicker access to entertainment thanks to its automatic source recognition.

The Control automatically recognises set-top boxes, OTT boxes, Blu-ray players, game consoles, as well as other connected devices.
