“The ability to purchase and rent video from Samsung Video and Media Hub will be disabled on July 1. To retain long-term access to your video library, Samsung recommends you transfer your previously purchased content to Samsung’s new video partner, M-GO”, announced Samsung in a company blog post.

M-Go is a joint venture of DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor is a pay-as-you-go video streaming service. Purchases previously made via the Samsung Video and Media Hub can be transferred to an M-Go account. Customers who transfer their accounts to M-Go will receive a $5 credit and 50% off their next two movie rentals, for a total maximum value of up to $13.

M-Go and Samsung are announced at the CES that they are partnering on a planned video streaming service to deliver movies and TV shows in the new Ultra High Definition format, which offers four times the resolution of high-definition video. It’s expected to debut later this year.
