However, this is the first time that it will be possible with video services and TVs. So far, iTunes has really only been available through the Apple TV, and bringing it exclusively to Samsung's Smart TVs is kind of a surprising move from Cupertino. If they want to lure in new customers who want to watch, they'll have to start playing nice with other companies by giving them the ability to play iTunes movies and TV shows, something that has been exclusive to Apple devices for years now.

The news comes after Samsung announced it would soon offer iTunes Movies and Apple AirPlay 2 support on its 2019 Smart TVs.

And similar to Vizio, LG at CES earlier today also announced a new partnership with Apple that will see support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on its 2019 line of smart TVs. Since it launched, SmartCast has developed into a functional connected TV platform in its own right, with both Google Cast as a backbone and a modest selection of apps and streaming services on top of it.

The "deal shows that perhaps Apple doesn't quite view Samsung as the enemy it used to", Michael Gartenberg, a former Apple marketing executive, wrote in Twitter.

Vizio has the most comprehensive range of models supporting AirPlay 2, including the P-Series Quantum series from 2018 and 2019. In recent years Apple has taken steps to wean itself off Samsung by developing its own future screen technology and device processors. Watching content on iTunes requires some form of Apple device, whether it's an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV.

AirPlay 2 support is kind of important, too. The app will appear in a carousel along with other services including Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video.

Last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook sent a letter to investors, warning them that Apple had to lower revenue guidance for its fiscal first quarter. Instead of creating its own TV, Apple has made a decision to forge partnerships with established, popular TV makers, with Samsung, LG and Vizio all set to support Apple features later this year.

It's been a big 24 hours for AirPlay, a feature of Apple's ecosystem that is often overlooked.
