Internet connected TVs are set to become a big market with various companies bringing the capability to their sets. Samsung has been leading the way with their collection of TVs with their in-built Smart Hub. Samsung have now announced a free 3D VOD service for the UK.
The on demand content will be available via the Samsung Smart Hub with the Explore 3D application, according to an article on Techradar by Marc Chacksfield. To start with there will be twenty different genres of programming. These will include films, children’s classics, documentaries, music videos, and trailers.
Currently only DreamWorks have been confirmed as a partner. Vice President of Consumer Electronics for Samsung, Andy Griffiths, has said “The demand for 3D is growing rapidly, but only a handful of channels are providing content”. He also promised the company will continue to grow the Smart TV service in the future.
This is added to other recent additions to the Samsung Smart Hub, which include the on demand Channel Five app. Users can download the app directly from the Samsung store, and is available for all Samsung Smart TVs.
