Samsung TVs to get YouTube 3D exclusively
At a press conference before the IFA show in Berlin, Samsung revealed it will be the first to host YouTube 3D videos on its Smart TVs and Smart Hubs. The dedicated app that makes this possible will be exclusive to Samsung for a limited but unspecified time. The company's European marketing director, Michael Zoller, said the app will be one of 100 new ones introduced before year's end, and likely by the end of September.
At the same time, Samsung added a new 60-inch version of its thin, 0.2-inch bezeled D8000 LED-lit TV line, which was introduced at CES. The 60D8000 gets 3D support and supports the Smart TV web and app platform.
