Samsung has decided to hand over its movie business to its partner known as M-Go, and for those who are not familiar with M-Go, they happen to be a pay-as-you-go streaming service that was concocted in a joint venture between DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor. M-Go will then take over several million accounts of customers who have made movie and TV show purchases via Samsung’s Video and Media hub. Apparently, Samsung has already notified their customers that from today onward, customers will not be able to purchase or perform video rentals through its store.
It seems as though Samsung is taking a step back from direct media sales slowly but surely, as evident in May earlier this year when Amazon’s Kindle app would take over Samsung Hub Books. Apart from that, Samsung Music has been announced to shut down this month, with Samsung Milk Music being offered as an alternative, or you can always check out a Slacker-powered Internet radio service instead.
It must be noted, however, that both M-Go and Samsung are working on a video streaming service which will bring movies and TV shows in the new Ultra High Definition format to consumers later in 2014, allowing your eyeballs to go nuts with four times the resolution of high-definition video.
