Samsung Electronics America has confirmed the availability of the Samsung Smart Media Player, bringing live TV content and all of the Smart TV apps to consumer’s current TVs that lack Smart Hub capabilities.
Packed with more than 100 Smart Apps including Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, VUDU and YouTube, the Smart Media Player also enables viewers to access cable content without having to pay expensive monthly rental fees associated with a cable box.
Priced at $149.99 and currently only available in the US, the Samsung Smart Media Player delivers an affordable way for consumers to easily discover and enjoy live TV programming and movies. With the included remote, viewers can seamlessly switch between cable content to the many video and social apps available through the device.
“With our new Samsung Smart Media Player, we’re providing consumers with an all-in-one solution that makes the TV-watching experience ‘smarter,'” said Jim Kiczek, Director of Digital Audio and Video at Samsung Electronics America. “This great product brings the Samsung Smart TV experience to any digital TV, giving customers a seamless home entertainment experience that combines live cable content and Smart TV applications all in one device.”
