4K TVoD service from Samsung and M-GO
November 13, 2014
Samsung Electronics America and video on demand platform M-GO – a joint venture between Technicolor and DreamWorks Animation- have confirmed the availability of M-Go’s ultra-high-definition (UHD) content library on Samsung’s range of UHD TVs. This partnership brings a next generation content experience to Samsung UHD TV owners and represents the first UHD transactional video on demand streaming service to be launched in the US.
The M-GO 4K Ultra HD offering kicks off with a select number of titles and will quickly grow to 100 movie and TV shows by the end of 2014. UHD content will be priced on average at $1-2 more than HD titles to rent and $3-5 to buy. According to the pair, the potent combination of UHD content delivery on Samsung UHD televisions delivers a truly immersive cinema-like experience in the home.
“We’re excited to partner with M-GO to deliver our customers the purest UHD streaming experience,” said Eric Anderson, Vice President of Content and Product Solutions at Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung has a long history of technological innovation, and by working with M-GO, we will bring our customers an unparalleled viewing experience and provide customers more choice and access to UHD content at home.”
“The image quality of M-GO 4K Ultra HD content delivered through Samsung’s market leading UHD TVs will truly impress viewers with unprecedented picture quality,” said M-GO COO Christophe Louvion. “Our close collaboration with Samsung allows us to be first to deliver a best in class streaming experience for movie buffs and TV lovers on Samsung’s new Ultra High Definition TVs.”
Exclusive to Samsung, M-GO 4K Ultra HD content will be available across the brand’s broadest line up of UHD TVs yet.
M-GO’s UHD streaming solution provides high quality content that is either authored and post-produced in UHD, or pre-processed from licensed content partner source files and optimised for image clarity, detail and texture on televisions such as Samsung UHD TVs.
