Samsung to Kill Off Video Hub July 31
Jul 2, 2014, 2:03 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Samsung has begun informing customers that it will cease operating its Video Hub effective July 31. The closure follows closely those of Samsung's Music Hub and Book Hub, which went dark this week. The Video Hub was a digital storefront through which Samsung Galaxy device owners could purchase or rent movies and television shows. Samsung said customers who've made video purchases will still be able to access their content thanks to a partnership with M-Go. Samsung said users will need to transfer their content to M-Go before July 31 if they want to keep it. Samsung is in the middle of re-imagining its content businesses, but didn't say what, if anything, will succeed the Video Hub on its devices. Samsung replaced its Music Hub with Milk, a streaming service that it offers for free.
