Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced Thursday the availability of the Samsung Smart Media Player (GX-SM530CF).
It will bring live TV content and Smart TV apps to consumers’ current TVs that lack Smart Hub capabilities.
Packed with more than 100 Smart Apps including Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, VUDU and YouTube, the Smart Media Player also enables viewers to access cable content without having to pay expensive monthly rental fees associated with a cable box.
With the included remote, viewers can seamlessly switch between cable content to the video and social apps available through the device.
“With our new Samsung Smart Media Player, we’re providing consumers with an all-in-one solution that makes the TV-watching experience ‘smarter,’” said Jim Kiczek, director of Digital Audio and Video at Samsung Electronics America.
“This product brings the Samsung Smart TV experience to any digital TV, giving customers a seamless home entertainment experience that combines live cable content and Smart TV applications all in one device.”
The Samsung Smart Media Box will be available on Oct. 23 at the retail price of $149.99.
