Korean manufacturer Samsung has announced it will be launching an entertainment store to provide movies and TV shows to their smartphones as well as Galaxy Tab tablet. Unfortunately, the media hub will only be available in US, and there’s no news if it will be made available in Asia. 

Three days ago, Samsung launched their new NX100 mirrorless camera, the first to use i-Function lens. And yesterday, the maker has announced it will be launching its Media Hub, an entertainment store that will offer TV shows and movies for rent on their smartphones and Galaxy Tab tablet.

Needless to say, the move is aimed at competing with Apple iTunes store which is already offering TV shows, movies and music. According to Gavin Kim, vice president of content services and enterprise mobility, the company is building up their content by working with partners including MTV Networks, NBC, Universal Studios and Paramount.

Unfortunately, the Media Hub, at press time, is only going to be available in US. No details on the pricing for the TV shows and movies yet. However, users who purchase the content can share it separately with up to five devices.
