iView Dr Who: Samsung Smart TV Nabs ABC, BBC Apps

By Oonagh Reidy | Thursday | 28/07/2011

Dr Who? Never miss a show again: Samsung Apps Store has snapped up ABC iView, BBC News and Explore VOD app for your viewing pleasure on Smart TV's And Blu Ray players.

ABC's iView app offers loads of local and international TV shows like Angry Boys, Spicks and Specs and Dr. Who, on demand. 

Other categories include ABC for Kids, news & current affairs, sports, arts & culture, comedy and documentaries. 

And for the first time here, Samsung Smart TV's can get BBC News delivered "continuously streamed" news as well as business, tech, entertainment, updates from one of the most highly respected news services in the world. 

This service was previously pay-only. This comes as the BBC is set to launch a global version of its on-demand video service, iPlayer for iPad. 

However, the bad news is it is not hitting Aussie shores, just yet, but we'll let you know if this changes.

Explore 3D, another new video-on-demand (VOD) app, streams movie trailers, music videos, lifestyle and documentaries in both 2D and 3D. 

And the best news of all is that the apps are free via Samsung Apps HDTV store. A whopping five million apps have already been downloaded since the store opened its virtual doors in February 2010.
 
It currently has more than 80 free apps, including BigPond Movies, AFL & NRL Game Analysers, NineMSN apps and seven streamed BigPond TV channels. 

"Samsung is committed to delivering a wide range of local and international content direct to Australian homes through Samsung Apps," said Brad Wright, AV Sales and Marketing Manager, Samsung Australia. 

"Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players are changing how consumers perceive the TV experience in their home."

The BBC's new iPlayer for iPad gives customers who pay a monthly fee access to programmes as well as the ability to download content and watch offline, something which is not currently available on the British version.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
