Amazon brings VoD service to Samsung HDTVs

Samsung and Amazon recently announced that Amazon's Video on Demand online video delivery service will soon be offered directly through certain Samsung HDTVs. The Internet-connected TVs will require a free widget download to access the service. This will allow users to access more than 50,000 titles, including over 2,000 HD movies, without needing a separate box.

The service will work with all 650 series or higher conventional TVs, as well as LED-backlit lines like the 7000 series, as long as they already support the existing Internet@TV Content Service. It lets owners either stream rented content or download movies to keep. Amazon Video On Demand also offers TV shows the day after they're broadcast on TV networks, and users can search or browse Amazon's content using the new widget.

There is no subscription cost associated with the service, which instead charges varying prices per video to buy or rent.
