M-GO, the video on demand service and joint venture between Technicolor and DreamWorks Animation, today announced the availability of its ultra-high-definition content library on Samsung’s line of UHD TVs. The agreement is the first UHD transactional video on demand streaming service to be launched in the U.S.
The M-GO 4K Ultra HD offering currently has a limited number of titles, but the company says that will grow to 100 movie and TV shows by the end of 2014. UHD content will be priced on average at $1-2 more than HD titles to rent and $3-5 to buy.
“We’re excited to partner with M-GO to deliver our customers the purest UHD streaming experience,” said Eric Anderson, vice president of content and product solutions at Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung has a long history of technological innovation, and by working with M-GO, we will bring our customers an unparalleled viewing experience and provide customers more choice and access to UHD content at home.”
“The image quality of M-GO 4K Ultra HD content delivered through Samsung’s market leading UHD TVs will truly impress viewers with unprecedented picture quality,” said M-GO COO Christophe Louvion. “Our close collaboration with Samsung allows us to be first to deliver a best in class streaming experience for movie buffs and TV lovers on Samsung’s new Ultra High Definition TVs.”
The deal is exclusive to Samsung.
