Digital entertainment service M-GO announced Thursday that owners of 2012 Samsung Smart TVs are the first to gain access to M-GO’s library of movies and TV shows streaming on demand directly on their Smart TVs.
With M-GO, people only pay for the movies and TV shows they want, never needing to commit to subscription fees. M-GO has content deals secured with Hollywood’s major studios, which drive its library of the newest releases.
The free M-GO app will be featured in the “What’s New” section of Samsung Apps on Samsung’s Smart Hub. Select Samsung Smart TV users can try out M-GO with a special offer of two free rentals by typing in the code “SamsungTV” and hitting apply at the point of purchase. The promotion is valid until June 30, 2013.
