Apple has now shared a list of AirPlay 2–enabled TVs announced to date:

  • LG OLED (2019)

  • LG NanoCell SM9X series (2019)

  • LG NanoCell SM8X series (2019)

  • LG UHD UM7X series (2019)

  • Samsung QLED Series (2019 and 2018)

  • Samsung 8 Series (2019 and 2018)

  • Samsung 7 Series (2019 and 2018)

  • Samsung 6 Series (2019 and 2018)

  • Samsung 5 Series (2019 and 2018)

  • Samsung 4 Series (2019 and 2018)

  • Sony Z9G Series (2019)

  • Sony A9G Series (2019)

  • Sony X950G Series (2019)

  • Sony X850G Series (2019 85", 75", 65" and 55" models)

  • Vizio P-Series Quantum (2019 and 2018)

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

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

  • Vizio E-Series (2019, 2018 and 2017)

  • Vizio D-series (2019, 2018 and 2017)

We've yet to see any AirPlay 2 announcements from smaller brands such as TCL, Hisense, Panasonic, or Toshiba.

AirPlay 2 support 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. Rumors suggest Apple could introduce the service within the first half of 2019.

Shedding a collective tear for all those folks (myself included) that purchased a non-supported TV within the last few years.
Why? Apple TV is still the best way to experience and consume your content on the biggest screen in your home.

I just wish you could purchase a decent "dumb" TV that doesn't have an operating system. I have a 2017 LG OLED and I use my Apple TV for everything. The OS on the TV is just another thing that needs updating if the vendor actually updates it. I would much rather update the Apple TV every 3-4 yrs. and have the latest OS and security updates.

I don't disagree, because I own an Apple TV 4K, but AirPlay access directly to the TV would still be beneficial. Most average consumers also don't want to shell out an additional $150-200 for the Apple TV if the option was available on the TV itself.
