Samsung First To Offer M-GO Digital Entertainment Service On Smart TV Platform
LOS ANGELES, April 25, 2013 — M-GO, the people-friendliest new digital entertainment service announced today that owners of 2012 Samsung Smart TVs are the first to gain access to M-GO’s deep library of movies and TV shows streaming on demand directly on their Smart TVs. With M-GO, people only pay for the movies and TV shows they want, never needing to commit to subscription fees. M-GO has content deals secured with Hollywood’s major studios, which drive its always-growing library of the newest releases – the earliest it is available at retail – as well as a deep catalogue of hidden gems and classic favorites.
The free M-GO app will be featured in the “What’s New” section of Samsung Apps on Samsung’s Smart Hub. Starting today, select Samsung Smart TV users can try out M-GO with a special offer of two free rentals by typing in the code “SamsungTV” and hitting apply at the point of purchase. The promotion is valid until June 30, 2013.*
“Samsung is transforming the home entertainment experience by giving consumers control, choice and access to their favorite content on the largest screen in the home,” said Eric Anderson , vice president, content and product solutions at Samsung Electronics America. “By being the first to offer M-GO to Smart TVs owners, consumers can get more of the movies and TV shows they love streaming right to their TV.”
“Providing easier access to the movies and TV shows people care about is M-GO’s mission,” said John Batter , CEO of M-GO. “Going live on Samsung Smart TVs is a huge milestone in giving consumers the power to enjoy an entire world of entertainment at their fingertips on the big screen at home.”
M-GO Takes User-Friendly to a New Level – “People-Friendliest” Entertainment Service
With M-GO, people can now sit back, relax and know that finding great entertainment is easier than ever:

However, M-GO is so committed to taking the hassle out of watching great digital entertainment quickly and easily, that it is going further – if M-GO doesn’t have the content, it will help people find it on other media stores including Amazon, Hulu, iTunes, Netflix and Vudu.
• Keep your viewing playlists personalized: M-GO gives up to six profiles per account and has a “Watch List” feature so that each member of the household gets tailored recommendations and their own wish list of movies and TV shows they want to watch later.
• Spending limits for parents to give their kids the freedom to watch but the ability to budget and avoid credit card shock when the bill arrives.
• M-GO also enhances viewing and entertainment discovery by providing movie trailers, critic reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, Cast and Crew images, filmographies and more – which provides a helpful second-screen experience.
• We’ve-got-your-back customer support. Live operators are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
M-GO connects consumers to the freshest new movies the same day as the DVD release (and next day for TV shows) – including such blockbusters as Django Unchained, Gangster Squad, The Guardians, The Mad Men Series and much more.
