Samsung N Service unveiled at CES: Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, Comcast and Verizon onboard
Well, what have we here? Looks as if Samsung’s cooking up quite the content partnership here at CES 2012, with Verizon, DirecTV, Time Warner Cable and Comcast (at least) onboard. From a contentcreation standpoint, NBC Universal is evidently signed on to crack open its coffers and let the material pour fourth, and we’re guessing we’ll hear of quite a few more once the announcement gets official. As of now, the so-called N Service looks to be one that’ll enable select pay-TV subscribers to stream content onto Samsung devices — hopefully whilst far, far away from home. At least for FiOS TV users, those who take advantage of N Service will be able to “access live streaming FiOS TV channels, as well as Flex View commercial movies and TV shows from one’s Samsung Smart TV or Blu-ray player.” It’ll obviously work with multi-room households, too. Have a peek at the detail shots below, and keep it locked right here as we learn more.
