The biggest advantage of the Samsung Smart Media Player is that it can actually replace your cable box, which cable companies charge you for every month so you can have the privilege of having a box that lets you watch the TV shows you are already paying for, because cable companies are the worst. Instead, you can go with the one-time fee for the Smart Media Player, which has a card slot for cable cards.
Of course, it’s not just a replacement for the cable box. The Smart Media Player will bring Samsung Smart Apps to your non-smart TV, including the heavy hitters – Netflix, Vudu, Amazon Instant Video, and YouTube. The S-Recommendation feature is also built-in, and you’ll be able to use the box to stream content from your mobile devices to the television.
You can look for the Samsung Smart Media Player on October 23, when it will be released with a $150 asking price.
