> A few days ago, Apple announced that AirPlay 2-enabled smart TVs are coming 
> soon from leading manufacturers, and there have subsequently been a series of 
> announcements from Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio at CES 2019 which would seem

> Apple has now shared a list of AirPlay 2–enabled TVs. They have announced to

>       • Samsung 5 Series (2019 and 2018)
>       • Samsung 4 Series (2019 and 2018)

>       • Vizio P-Series (2019, 2018 and 2017)
>       • Vizio M-Series (2019, 2018 and 2017)

> We've yet to see any AirPlay 2 announcements from smaller brands such as TCL, 
> Hisense, Panasonic, or Toshiba. But that doesn’t mean we won’t! 
> 
> AirPlay 2 support will vary across manufacturers in terms of functionality. 
> However, at the very least, it will allow users to stream video, audio, 
> photos, and more directly from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to supported smart 
> TVs. HomeKit support is also coming to many of these TVs, enabling users to 
> control volume, playback, and more using Siri or the Home app on an iPhone, 
> iPad, or Mac. 
> 
> Samsung announced that its latest smart TVs are also getting an exclusive 
> iTunes TV and movie app for accessing the storefront. 
> 
> Apple is widely expected to launch a "Netflix-esque" streaming video service 
> later this year, and AirPlay 2 support on leading smart TVs would make it 
> easier for users to stream Apple's original content on the big screen without 
> an Apple TV. Rumours suggest Apple could introduce the service within the 
> first half of 2019.
> 
> I’m planning to upgrade my lounge TV at some point this year. So knowing this 
> will be very useful. I think it could potentially give those with a vision 
> impairment quite a lot of functionality which we currently don’t have access 
> too. This is particularly true of those TV’s for which remote control is 
> available via an app.
> 
> The news has also dissuaded me from upgrading my fourth generation Apple TV.
