Following recent speculation at the CES show in Las Vegas, the consumer electronics giant confirmed that the BBC's catch-up platform will be offered in its Internet@TV service.
Over the coming months, the service will also be updated to include the Muzu.tv music library and LoveFilm's online DVD-rental offering. Full pricing for the TV sets will be revealed shortly.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, BBC director future media and technology Erik Huggers said: "BBC iPlayer has enjoyed huge success since launch two years ago, and the next challenge for us is taking the service mobile and into the living room.
"We've built a version of BBC iPlayer that can be easily adapted to work on internet-connected TVs."
Samsung hopes to eventually offer around 100 different Internet@TV Apps on its new IP-connected TVs and Blu-ray players, with some being free and others carrying a charge.
Sky News recently unveiled a dedicated TV widget giving access to its latest breaking news stories on Samsung TVs.
