Samsung has announced the "imminent availability" of its Media Hub media store, where downloads and rentals of video content will be offered for the company’s Galaxy line of phones and tablets, PCMag.com reports.
The content will include programming from MTV Networks, NBC Universal, Paramount and Warner Bros., the story says. Among the devices that will carry it are AT&T’s Samsung Captivate, T-Mobile’s Vibrant, Verizon’s Fascinate, Sprint’s Epic 4G and upcoming models of the Galaxy Tab.
New NBC shows such as “The Event” will be available the day after their broadcast, according to Michael Schreiber, VP of development for NBC Universal.
The service currently does not support laptops or TVs, according to the story, but indications are that it will be made available for more devices in the future.
The pricing structure appears to be higher than competing services, with TV shows offered for $1.99–about twice what Apple charges for content on the iPhone, the story says.
