Samsung launched a music-hub streaming service last July in US and the South Korean giant has now confirmed about its availability in non-samsung devices. According to the sources, the Special Vice President for Samsung media services, T J Kang revealed the company's decision to go beyond its own hardware.
Earlier, it was said that the company is planning to bring the music hub to its own devices like Smart TVs, phones, tablets and more. The company, however, did not specify a stipulated time frame.
The music hub service of Samsung is currently available on Samsung Galaxy Note II and Samsung Galaxy S III. The service is available only in six countries at the moment, but the company is thinking of expanding its services to other countries as well.
A music site and music application, Samsung music hub, allows its users to stream online music. The music hub is a cloud- based service which combines the library of a user with radio-discovery features along with Spotify-style streaming. A music streaming company, m-spot runs the music hub, which was acquired by Samsung last year.
The main issue now for the company over expanding its services to other devices would be obtaining licenses for different territories. This is going to be a tough nut to crack, since music is more of a crowded space and reaching its competitor devices is not that easy. However, Samsung, with its current popularity in the mobile market may find it a cake walk.
