Samsung South Africa is in discussions with various parties to offer video on-demand content on its TVs in South Africa.
This is according to the business leader of its TV division, Justin Shaw, who was answering questions at the recent launch of the Samsung ES9000.
“Samsung is looking to maintain its leadership in high-quality video on demand content,” Shaw said.
He added that they also want the content to be locally relevant.
However, video on-demand is dependent on both the availability and cost-effectiveness of broadband in South Africa, Shaw said.
Although Samsung already offers a limited amount of content in Video Hub on its Android smartphones and tablets, Shaw said that they are not ready to announce anything for the TV market yet.
