[Samsung] Spotify for Samsung TV - Tizen OS

Would be really nice to have in this year the Spotify app available for the 2015 and 2016 models of Samsung Smart TV's running Tizen OS, at least some kind of beta or limited functionality one if not fully working. It's a shame that Spotify is still not available in the Samsung SmartHub after 2 years of the release of the new platform.

@deadnex I'm sorry for offtopic, but could you give me some tips how to install emby? :) I've managed to enter developer mode so far, but i have no idea where to find this app to download (there's only an IP adress shown in one topic). Thanks in advance

This really is getting beyond a joke that you can't get even a limited service going on Tizen when EVERY other service has had their apps on that platform since early summer.

My service will not be being renewed as of the 1st January.

Enough is enough - do Spotify think that they can do whatever they please without recourse to those paying for them to be in the position they are?

It appears they do.

Guess what though Spotify?

People are walking with thier money and going elsewhere.

Please Spotify!!
I was hesitant to upgrade my 2013 f9090 with the 2015 sek-3500 because of tizen. I did it because Samsung was taking services offline and because of HDMI 2.0. But tizen is slower on an Octacore than the previous Plattform on a quad core. And no spotify connect or app is a step backwards. Android TV on the hardware would be awesome.

Everyone needs to email Sam about this.

Would be nice to have an update sinc the app is constantly stuck and why the smart tv is not appearing in between the other devices playing? I use premium basically only for the smart tv app but start to have second toughts because the albums are not available, playlist almost never load and if you manage to play one (after restarting the app several times) you get random errors and it is like this 99% of the times. Last update was jan 2016... Hello!? 


Made my day. Thanks spotify. Love the possibility to listen to music via the tv.  :)

I have up to date software version 1027 on my UN40J5200 and still no sign of Spotify. This TV is like a ghost, I still don't know whether it has this **bleep**ty "tizen os" or something else. No one else than me seems to have it, even Samsung's official website doesn't know this TV.

It is not available for this model. Actually this model is not updated
anymore. Buy a Chromecast and stop buying Samsung products :)
