Watch as many as one thousand movies from O2 on your Samsung Smart TV

02. April 2014

Owners of Samsung Smart TV now have access to O2’s online movie database. For a symbolical fee they can enjoy all-time classics as well as newest blockbusters.

Prague (2nd April 2014) – Samsung is offering an interesting innovation to Samsung Smart TV owners. Starting today the applications offered to them include O2 TV which brings a selection of as many as 1,000 movies. The application is available for Samsung Smart TVs manufactured in 2012 and 2013 (E and F series).

Once the client has paid the fee (CZK 30 for older movies and CZK 55 for new ones) they can watch it within 24 hours from the making of the payment. The number of viewings is not limited, so the client can watch one movie several times. The O2 TV movie database is expected to grow on a continuous basis. Approximately 30 new titles should be added each month.

“O2 TV represents yet another improvement of the services brought to Samsung Smart TV owners who seek entertainment. It is a great opportunity to enjoy older and new movies legally, for just a fraction of the price of a movie ticket,” says Pavel Mizera, Content Specialist Smart TV, Samsung Electronics Czech and Slovak.

O2 TV offers Czech movies as well as movies produced by leading Hollywood studios, such as The Walt Disney Company Limited, Warner Bros Entertainment Inc., Sony Pictures Television International or Universal Studios International B.V. Finding the preferred movie is very easy since the service enables the leafing and browsing through just like in an online catalog. The list of movies features screenshots and video samples. Once a user has logged in, they can view a summary of current and previously purchased movies. They can also add or mark any movie as their favorite and purchase it later.

Samsung is the only manufacturer of Smart TV products which works, on a long-term basis, on the development of strictly local applications so that it can offer to its customers more than just the ordinary television broadcasting. By adding O2 TV into its portfolio, Samsung proves its leadership in this business segment. Smart TV owners can now choose from among 40+ applications.

Not only are Samsung Smart TV products a gateway to endless entertainment, they also embody the most advanced method of control. A revolutionary system of voice command recognition and control via intuitive moves Smart Interaction enables the execution of various commands (e.g. volume adjustment or channel switching) without the remote control.
