Samsung announced a few days ago several partnerships that will allow content from Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Hulu and Adobe to run on Galaxy Tab and Samsung internet-connected devices.
“Together, TWC and Samsung will give our customers all the channels they enjoy now as well as full navigation experience on Samsung smart TVs, without need for set-top box, and we’ll do it this year,” said TWC chief Glenn Britt.
Comcast and Time Warner Cable revealed that their content will come on the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Smart TVs by the end of this year (including live TV) ; Hulu reported that Hulu plus subscription will be available soon on android phones and Adobe announced that Flash will be supported by Samsung’s Smart TVs.
Galaxy Tab will be capable of acting as a remote for TWC and Comcast subscribers in order to search TV content, change channels, program the DVR and also watch live TV directly on the tablet!
“We have the technology framework in place to deliver new features to Comcast customers faster than ever, including on connected TVs, tablets and multiple devices, which is core to our strategy and a key facet of the future of television,” said Comcast CEO Brian Roberts.
Hulu CEO, Jason Kilar, also announced that Hulu Plus will be available on android phones and tablets such as Samsung Galaxy Tab. Hulu revealed on their blog that an Android 2.2 app will be available in a few months.
“We’ll announce further details as soon as we have an official launch date and complete list of Hulu Plus-enabled Android phones,” Hulu said.
