With Samsung holding the lions share of the television market, this is fantastic news for a huge number of GOOD viewers who may have been mirroring, casting or watching via computer or mobile device up to this point. With GOOD already available for Google and Apple TVs, the Samsung Tizen app is a much-anticipated addition to the free platform.
