Samsung TV Plus for Channels

Can some one please provide custom .m3u playlist for Samsung TV Plus.
Samsung opened up its free TV streaming service to all at https://samsungtvplus.com/

How is it different from Pluto or Xumo?

It's from Samsung, as opposed to ViacomCBS (Pluto) or Comcast (Xumo).

Ok. Is the content different?. Looks the same to me

I have no idea. They're all already owned or licensed content that they cram full of commercials. It's just another way for companies to sell your eyeballs to advertisers, by making you the product, instead of the video content.

I've found the VICE channel to be quite interesting so I grabbed the M3U8 and made it a custom channel. Sadly i haven't found any correct Gracenote EPG data for it, since this streaming channel is different from the one found on Cable TV.

(I didn't find any other channel particularly interesting, or I already had some of them.)

And here's the white png logo:

Ran across this yesterday. Very good stream quality. They also have other services available

Thank you

There is some more information here: Samsung, Roku, Vizio, BumbleBee, Tubi TV.

New docker for Samsung TV Plus:

Forgive me. Still new to this.

I've got Samsung Docker running. Have no clue what I'm supposed to fill in for Source http://... or XMLTV Guide Data

You can retrieve the Source .m3u and XMLTV Guide Data URLs via the status page. http://127.0.0.1:8182

Thought I'd tried that but got a "This site can’t be reached127.0.0.1 refused to connect". I'll try again. My thanks

Update: Tried again. Same thing. It appears my firewall settings won't allow a connection. I'll need to decide if I want to change that.

127.0.0.1 is the address of the "local host", i.e. the machine you installed the Docker on. If you are on another machine, you need the IP Address or host name of the machine the Docker is on. This is mine (ignore that my port is different than 8182; I wanted it elsewhere):

Oh I see. That may have been the issue. I was on a computer different from the one Docker is installed on.
Makes sense. Never too old to learn.

My thanks

Got this loaded, thank you as we actually enjoy the ChiveTV, see it at a local resteraunt and it almost becomes mezmorizing. However, is there a way to remap the channels. I have my locals from 8-43 and HuluTV for the "cable" channels that starts at 6000. However, the Samsung channels are starting at 1000 and there's 500 channels, my wife isn't going to want to scroll through 500+ channels to get to TBS or ESPN.

Thanks,

Jay

You could set the Custom Channels source to ignore channel-number from M3U, then they would end up with 9000 numbers

Samsung TV plus for channels is not working with latest update
2021.11.19.2040

I’m using the M3U and XML urls shared above, and Samsung TV+ content and guide data is working fine. What method are you using?

From what I’ve learned there isn’t any benefit gained by using the Docker container for this.
