RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J and LOS ANGELES, November 12, 2014 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and M-GO, a premium digital video on demand (VOD) service and joint venture between Technicolor and DreamWorks Animation, today announced the availability of its ultra-high-definition (UHD) content library on Samsung’s line of award-winning UHD TVs. This partnership brings a next generation content experience to Samsung UHD TV owners and represents the first UHD transactional video on demand streaming service to be launched in the U.S.

The M-GO 4K Ultra HD offering kicks off with a select number of titles and will quickly grow to 100 movie and TV shows by the end of 2014. UHD content will be priced on average at $1-2 more than HD titles to rent and $3-5 to buy. The potent combination of UHD content delivery on Samsung UHD televisions delivers a truly immersive cinema-like experience in the home.

“We’re excited to partner with M-GO to deliver our customers the purest UHD streaming experience,” said Eric Anderson, Vice President of Content and Product Solutions at Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung has a long history of technological innovation, and by working with M-GO, we will bring our customers an unparalleled viewing experience and provide customers more choice and access to UHD content at home.”
