Blu-ray, Tech Digest news

samsung-lovefilm.JPGSamsung’s Internet@TV service in Blu-ray players will get a substantial update today by introducing the LOVEFiLM streaming app. A £5.99 a month subscription to the service will give owners access to thousands of movies to be pumped directly into their players.

Already available in select Sammy TVs and BD decks, the service will now hit all Samsung web-connected Blu-ray systems.

“Adding the LOVEFiLM streaming service to all Samsung Blu-ray players and Blu-ray Home Theatre Systems is great news for us at Samsung as we’re dedicated to providing our customers with relevant and exciting content, all from the comfort of their own home,” Andy Griffiths, Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung UK.

“The Internet@TV service offers viewers a gateway to access great content in an exciting new way, unlocking the full potential of our connected devices. Services like LOVEFiLM will offer our customers more variety, choice and entertainment from our innovative products.”

Samsung promise more new apps will be coming to their web-connected systems over the course of 2011, following the success of their Application Developer Day, which saw the company encourage developers to populate their Internet@TV platform.
