Samsung to offer Music Hub service on other platforms

updated 08:07 pm EST, Sun January 27, 2013

Music service will be usable on other devices

Samsung is planning to offer its Music Hub service to consumers using devices other than ones the company currently ships. The service, which offers scan-and-match storage, personalized radio station streaming, and song recommendations, will expand from Samsung mobile phones to other electronic devices from the manufacturer, before spreading to other smartphone and mobile device brands in the future.

Samsung Media Services' Senior Vice President TJ Kang explained the plans to The Next Web, claiming the service to eventually compete against other manufacturer's own music-based offerings, such as Sony's Music Unlimited, and pitting it directly against Google and Amazon's own, more widely-used services.

The expansion of Music Hub is apparently dependent on territory-specific deals with record labels, though specific timings have not been disclosed. Future support of the service, which operates in just six countries at present, will also depend on the use of the service on Samsung's own devices, including the Galaxy S III, Note II, and Internet-connected smart appliances.
