      Hi There,

      I have a 2014 Samsung Smart TV – but the tenplay app doesn’t appear to exist, is there a way to download it so I can use tenplay?

      Hi Frank,

      I believe the TENPlay service is available through the Freeview Plus app on Smart TVs. Try searching for Freeview Plus in Samsung Smart Hub.
