RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. – March 20, 2013 – As consumers continue to seek out personalized content experiences, Samsung Electronics, today announced the availability of new apps that give consumers the opportunity to discover and enjoy even more of the content they love.

As the Smart TV platform of choice for premium content brands and application services, consumers can now access quality streaming video and audio content at the click of a button.

“We have seen a growing demand for quality and diverse programs that reflect the interests of all types of audiences, as well as for quality streaming audio and video content,” said Eric Anderson, Vice President of Content and Product Solutions at Samsung Electronics America, Inc. “This year, Samsung is transforming the TV experience and bringing the ‘wow’ back to home entertainment by allowing consumers to experience this new content on the largest screen in the home.”
