Samsung today announced the launch of the Movie & TV Shows Panel in the region; an application pane available on its Smart TVs that will give users access to thousands of the latest movies and TV shows.
In partnership with icFlix, an online media streaming service, the new application panel provides users the opportunity to enjoy watching the latest programs and movies directly on their Smart TVs.
“Video on demand is fast becoming popular in the UAE with more Samsung Smart TV consumers wanting to access the latest movie and TV content quickly and conveniently.” said Vinod Nair, General Manager, TV Business at Samsung Gulf Electronics. “This is why Samsung has been working closely with on-demand video content service providers to create an enhanced interactive entertainment experience making it easier for them to watch their favorite content when they want. As easily as clicking through to the Smart Hub Menu on your Smart TV, users will be able to instantly access a host of movies and TV shows by accessing the new Movie Panel.”
Content can be watched on a Samsung Smart TV and then continued on a Samsung smartphone or tablet, ensuring that users can enjoy their media on whichever device they prefer. The subscription will cost $7.99 per month, with Samsung looking to partner with more media streaming services to offer an even wider array of content.
