Owners of Web-connected Samsung television sets now have a little TIME on their hands, as the magazine launched the free TIME Samsung TV app Monday.

The app offers users: the latest stories from TIME.com, with topics including Politics, U.S., World, Business, Technology, and Science and Entertainment; Quotes of the Day; content from blogs including Newsfeed, Techland, Healthland, and Tuned; full-screen video content with fast-forward and rewind functionality; and the ability to switch from app mode to widget mode, allowing users to access the app while watching live TV.

The TIME Samsung TV app will also offer access to photo essays, columnists, and special features such as Person of the Year and TIME 100.
