CNET reports that Samsung has advised its Music Hub users to “take the time to download all purchased content and use any remaining vouchers for Samsung Music before July 1, 2014 – after that date they will no longer be available”.

The closure also spells the end of the Music Hub app which is pre-installed on Samsung Android smartphones and is generally considered to be bloatware.

Samnung executives have previously warned that they were considering abandoning their “content hubs”.
