Today, Amazon has announced that their Cloud Player app is now available on 2012 Samsung Smart TV models, as well as Roku media players. The new app gives Cloud Player users access to their entire music library on these new devices, and they join a long list of products that the Cloud Player app is already compatible with, including the Kindle Fire, Sonos music players, Android devices, and iOS devices.

Samsung Smart TV customers can install the Cloud Player app via Samsung’s Smart Hub. Playback of music is also supported through any speakers or sound systems connected to Samsung Smart TVs, which effectively turn your home theater into a booming stereo system where you can play your entire music library.

As far as Roku users, you can download the Cloud Player channel from the Featured or Music category in the Roku Channel Store. Of course, the app is free, and users will be able to listen to their music library on the Cloud Player through their TV and out of whatever speakers they have connected.

On a similar note, Amazon released apps of their Instant Video service to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Amazon's answer to Netflix and Hulu has over 30,000 movies and TV shows to choose from, and now they're available at your fingertips while you're on the road, assuming that you have an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad (which was supported by Amazon earlier in the year).
