TVs - Hulu and YouTube?

by jaximflash / June 16, 2008 10:14 PM PDT

Mr Samsung:
I don't expect you to comment on future products, but it would be great if one of Samsung TVs allowed the user to watch videos from sites like YouTube.com, Hulu.com, Revision3, etc.

It would also be great if the user could select which RSS feeds they would like to read on their TV instead of getting stuck with only one RSS feed like USAToday as it is with the 750 series TVs.

If you know of any firmware upgrade or any new Samsung hardware product that would allow me to do this, please let us know.

Regarding RSS feeds...
by Mr__S / June 18, 2008 3:23 PM PDT

I completely agree with you. Several people at Samsung also agree. I wouldn't be surprised if future models have the flexibility to select any RSS feed because several people have made that request.

I also wouldn't be surprised if we allowed our TVs to connect with online video content. The guys at the factory are constantly exploring ways we can enhance the Samsung TV experience. Integrating TV and Online seems to be a natural evolution in the near future.

The ideal RSS feed for me would be a feed that shows me the performance of my fantasy sports players (especially during football season). Wouldn't that be awesome? You can watch your favorite team and see how your players are performing from a feed at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for contributing to the Samsung Forums.

How Likely?

Thanks for the response, Mr Samsung.

How likely would it be that TVs that currently have Internet connection capability (i.e. Series 7) would receive a firmware update with any Internet capability improvements like custom RSS feeds?

Not for the 750...

Unfortunately, highly unlikely. Future models may have the capability to do this, but it will not be implemented in our current product line.

Best,

Mr. Samsung

With the connectivity of the 750 and future capabilities it should provide (according to my Samsung rep at work) i wouldn't doubt that by next year we should see TVs have built in browsers or specific RSS feeds or firmware updates for certain RSS feeds based on user preference. Im just speculating.
