Korean electronics giant Samsung is about to launch three new personalized SmartTV services, which aims to personalize viewers experience. The three new SmartTV services will be introduced at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show 2017 (CES) on Jan. 5.

CES 2017 is coming this January and it will be the greatest hub for electronics companies to come out a better idea and showcase their products. The big tech event will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to Digital Trends, Samsung is going to introduce three new Smart TV services that will infuse more personalized SmartTV services such as Sports, Music, and TV Plus. Each of these three new services will focus on a unique part of the home entertainment world, which means that viewers will have their own personalized TV contents based on their TV preferences. This can be done, according to Samsung, through the company's Smart Hub Platform.

According to Android Headlines, the Music service ties together music from eight different app partners, including Spotify, iHeartRadio, Napster, Deezer, Sirius XM, Vevo, Melon, and Bugs, but that's not all. And it's not just about songs, the new Music service can also make recommendations based on the viewer listening habits across all apps. This can be seen in the preview section of Samsung's Smart Hub interface.

On the other hand, the new Sports service aims to make searching for favorite games lot easier now. Instead of going from channel to channel, the new Sports service gathers and summarizes them all together in one place, reducing the amount of time spent on searching contents. At the same time, more important information like game schedules and game scores will also display in the same place.

Finally, Samsung TV Plus service will allow the viewer to watch marathon TV sessions via a TV Plus channel rather than wait for the cable companies' offerings. Samsung said it's all part of what the company called as a new Smart Electronic Program Guide (EPG).

Samsung has already started its TV Plus service in South East Asia region, and recently in the US. Samsung hopes that it will be made available in Europe starting April 2017. Samsung Music service will be launching in some parts of Europe, which include France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
