Samsung Closing Video and Media Hub, You Have Until August 1 to Transfer Content

samsung logo

Samsung announced today that is closing the doors to Samsung Video and Media Hub. These services have come preloaded on all Samsung devices for quite some time now, allowing users to access an extensive library of purchasable content, such as movies and music.

Interestingly enough, the press release went out today, but according to the release, Samsung closed the doors to customers looking to purchase new content yesterday on July 1. Thanks for the heads up, Sammy. However, people with content already purchased still have until August 1 to download and transfer their purchases.

Full details, if you happen to use these services, can be seen below. In addition, Samsung even explains what to do if you are afraid of losing your purchased content.

The ability to purchase and rent video from Samsung Video and Media Hub will be disabled on July 1. To retain long-term access to your video library, Samsung recommends you transfer your previously purchased content to Samsung’s new video partner, M-GO (a joint venture of DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor).

You will only be able to transfer the content you have purchased (not the content you have rented) to M-GO. All Samsung Video and Media Hub customers who transfer their account to M-GO will receive the benefit of an exclusive Welcome Offer valued at up to $13.By transferring your Samsung Video and Media Hub content to M-GO, you will be able to access your previously purchased videos from M-GO’s library at no additional cost.

Not to be rude, but did any of you actually use Media Hub or Samsung Video?

    When I had my Droid Charge (lol) I used the credit to buy Star Trek. Maybe something else. Feel sorry for anyone who used it as an option. I would be pissed.

    Well, I am trying the Google Play Music all access free for 3 months as a result of the Samsung shutdown. I am pleased by the musical selections thus far, but I don’t think I will pay up at the end of the trial.

    Glad to hear, I hope Android OEMs would stop trying to replicate Google’s services.

    • NoMoreBloat

      Now samsung can remove all their other bloat.

      I’m wonder how soon till we here a New Service opens up for Tizen to replace this owned by Samsung.

    That leaves Samsung accounts, book store, knox and s-voice left to be removed. Did I miss anything?

    • crazed_z06

      Knox is part of android now lol

      • http://www.techreviewshop.com/ JP

        I know, but knowing Samsung they might spin off their own work with a new version S-KNOX or something like that.

    • SamBoy

      On this

    • Open1Your1Eyes0

      Samsung account is fine because it works with syncing things like S-Note and KNOX is for enterprise security so can’t blame them for not wanting to ever take that away. S-Voice and Samsung Books need to leave immediately though.

    Not at all but I guess this means they’re moving more towards google maybe

    • Mike Aurin

      Not overly likely yet considering all the recent Tizen activity but that would be sweet,
