Samsung plans to expand Music Hub streaming to non-Samsung devices
Speaking at the Midem music conference in France, TJ Kang, SVP at Samsung Media Services, said the company will first focus on expanding Music Hub to all of its own Android smartphones and tablets as well as smart TVs and possibly even its Android-powered connected refrigerator. But Kang said Samsung recognizes that many consumers own devices from a variety of manufacturers, so the firm is exploring porting Music Hub to other mobile operating systems and hardware platforms.
Music Hub incorporates streaming media technologies developed by mSpot, acquired by Samsung in May 2012. The service offers free, ad-supported access to more than 19m tracks streamed over 3G or Wi-Fi. Users may also purchase individual tracks and complete albums, storing all tracks in the cloud.
