Samsung Secure Signing of Football App
After a hectic summer that has seen some of the biggest transfers ever witnessed in the English game, the football season is now well and truly underway. But forget about Robin Van Persie amazingly leaving Arsenal to join Manchester United in search of silverware. Never mind the fact that Chelsea splashed almost £80m on some of the best young talent from across the globe.
The one deal that most football fans are talking about is Samsung’s signing of THE Football App!
Well, at least some football fans who are fortunate enough to own a Samsung Smart TV are talking about it anyway.
Free for all
Having set in place a partnership with applications developer Motain, the Korean manufacturer have announced that THE Football App will be available for free download to those who have invested in a Samsung Smart TV. We should point out at this stage that the app is only available on TV models from Samsung’s 2011 range or later. Those that do have a TV that qualifies will be able to access a huge amount of football related content that the app provides – which has previously only been available on smartphones and tablets. So what exactly can you expect from the app?
THE Football App covers more than 50 international football leagues throughout the world, including the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga. In addition, cross-league competitions such as the Champions League and Europa League are included alongside international tournaments like the World Cup and African Cup Of Nations.
Users will have access to information on every game covered, including team news, tactical line-ups, scores and in-game league table standings. With the data being constantly refreshed, the user can be confident that they have the most up to date details and stay in touch with every kick of the season.
Once the match has finished and the dust has settled, additional features will allow football fans to review the day’s events at their leisure, taking in:
- Statistical information from every game
- Video highlights from matches on every continent
- Player interviews
- Post-match press conferences
Thanks to the wealth of data that it provides and its user friendly intuitive interface; The Football App has so far proven to be a big hit with smartphone users – boasting over 3 million downloads. With the enhanced experienced offered on home TVs thanks to larger screens, it is likely that many die hard football fans that own a Samsung Smart TV will be following suit. However, it isn’t just fanatical supporters craving information that are downloading the app, with some using it for more serious pursuits.
The speed at which the data is updated means that some who like to bet on football are using the app to make more informed betting choices. An example being that they may decide to make an in-game bet against a team that has just seen their star player stretchered off with an injury. And with the ability to set notifications updates on up to 10 football matches at a time, they are also able to keep a track of the bets that they have placed, without having to constantly check back to see if anything important has happened.
Whatever reason you might have for installing The Football App on your Samsung Smart TV, it is certainly worth taking a look considering it won’t cost you a penny for something that smartphone users are happily paying £2.49 for.
