Samsung Apps: Over One Million Served

Posted Mon Dec 6, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Samsung's connected TVs seem to be doing just fine, despite the lack of Google TV.

When a television company starts talking about apps, our eyes roll. Generally, it's a half-assed attempt to cash in on something that Apple has hit on. Samsung, though, appears to be doing pretty well with it.

Samsung owners have now hit a million downloads for Samsung apps. The majority of those, it seems, would be things like Netflix, Pandora, Blockbuster on Demand and Twitter, but premium apps are almost certainly doing a bit of business as well.

While it doesn't compare to the kind of business that Apple does, it's a great sign, especially considering that Samsung Apps debuted this year.

The rumor, of course, is that Samsung will be launching a Google TV. Official word from Samsung changes "will" to "might," and with the success of Samsung Apps it's clear to see why.
