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?
