How to watch Super Bowl for free on a Samsung Smart TV
Without getting into the nitty-gritty of mirroring web browsers to your TV (which can have mixed results for live events), the-tried and-true means of getting Super Bowl 2022 for free is through an over-the-air (OTA) antenna.
Available in a number of shapes, sizes, and applications (primarily indoor/outdoor use), an OTA antenna is manually connected to the coaxial input on the back of your TV. Once plugged in, you’ll run a channel-scan that will pick up whatever TV stations are being broadcast within a certain mile-cap. Basic indoor antennas can typically grab stations within about a 25-mile range, while more advanced outdoor models can often muster up to about 75 miles or more.
DALLAS—Parks Associates has released consumer research showing that in Q3 2021, 27% of US broadband subscribers reported that smart TV’s using the Samsung Tizen operating system were their primary device for consuming video content.
The data highlighted the fact that more “changes are coming for the video entertainment market in 2022," said Eric Sorensen, senior contributing analyst, Parks Associates. "The smart TV will cement its status as the default streaming platform in the households. We will see many more content partnerships and service acquisitions among providers and manufacturers. Content creators will leverage their ability to reach audiences directly, while service and content providers will adapt their business models to anticipate higher levels of churn than in previous years."
Acquisitions and consolidations are becoming key options for streaming firms to compete in the face of limited material and the constant demand for more new content, Parks also reported.
It’s OTT Video Tracker found that the average churn rate for SVODs increased to 45% in 2021, a 5.5 percentage point jump from 2020. Consumers hold on to the services they use the most and jump among the others, paying for a program or season and then canceling when they are finished, Parks reported. The number of subscriptions may rise and fall over time, indicating that churn rates will continue to be elevated in 2022.
Parks Associates also reported that streaming media providers will face increasing competition from digital and social content producers in 2022. Popular online content creators are circumventing established distribution models and building their streaming applications from the ground up. For instance, KevOnStage Studios, created by comedian and multi-viral content producer Kevin Fredericks, whose stage name is KevOnStage, is very successful with his YouTube channel.
"Streaming apps provide new revenue opportunities, especially with the chance to retain content ownership rights," Sorensen said. "Digital content creators can monetize content and build audiences collected from social networking and video sharing platforms to their streaming applications and websites."
The OTT Video Market Tracker, an annual service from Parks Associates, features monthly updates on trends and market activities in the OTT video space, including comprehensive tracking of existing and emerging players and quarterly subscriber estimates.
Alongside improvements to Bixby, SmartThings, and Samsung Knox, Samsung also announced improvements to Tizen OS for smart TVs. During the ongoing Samsung Developer Conference 2021, the South Korean firm said it wants to consolidate its leadership in the TV segment with more intelligent software and deeper integration with its other services.
Improved video calling, Samsung Health, and gaming on Tizen-powered smart TVs
Keeping its ‘Screens Everywhere, Screen For All’ vision in mind, the company is introducing newer experiences to Tizen OS for smart TVs. Samsung has developed a better video calling experience on TVs in partnership with Google via AI-enabled focus and zoom features. Samsung Health can now use a webcam attached to a Tizen-powered smart TV to track user movements and provide real-time feedback during workouts.
Samsung’s mid-range and high-end smart TVs already have various gaming-related features, including AMD FreeSync Premium, a 120Hz refresh rate, auto low-latency mode, and Game Bar. For an even better gaming experience, the company is bringing automated settings for low latency and HDR10+ calibration.
Tizen For Business is a new platform for managing interactive digital signage displays
For businesses, the South Korean firm will soon launch the Tizen For Business platform. It supports interactive e-boards in schools, kiosks at malls, and displays at airports, restaurants, stores, and subways. It will offer easy-to-use display management portals that businesses can use for real-time monitoring and remotely controlling screens. It also allows quickly applying settings to multiple devices with just one touch.
Tizen is already the world’s biggest smart TV platform, and with the upcoming improvements, it will have more depth in its arsenal to compete with Amazon’s Fire TV, Google’s Android TV, and LG’s webOS platforms.
