Epic 4G gets Samsung Media Hub upgrade OTA; prices start as low as $1.99 for T.V. shows
Thanks to an OTA upgrade sent out by Sprint, owners of the Epic 4G can now purchase or rent  television shows or movies  from the Samsung Media Hub store. A 24 hour movie rental will cost you $2.99 to $3.99 while you can purchase a movie for $9.99 to $17.99. Television shows start as low as $1.99 with some net-day episodes available.

Earlier this week at a press event in New York, the Korean based manufacturer said that content partners for the Media Hub store are MTV, NBC, Paramount, Universal Studios, and Warner with others to join in the future. The service will be made available to all Galaxy S smartphones and the Galaxy Tab Android tablet.

Awesome, this is what the Sprint Movie pricing should be. I hope the pic quality is worth it.

It might be nice pic quality, but I don't think the pricing is good enough. I think I'll go to redbox till something better comes up. Also, the movies on there suck right now. I was scrolling through it on my Epic and their top movie is Iron Man...not Iron Man 2. Next is Star Trek, then Forgetting Sarah Marshall...Outdated movies you could probably find in Walmart's $5.00 pile of DVDs.

the pricing will hopefully go down. right now ur paying to be "the first to be able to" and the fact that there is little actual competition in the market. once netflix and blockbuster and whoever else get video streaming apps it will hopefully and quickly go down to like .99 for older movies and maybe 1.99 for newer movies (or less hopefully). That should prompt a lot of impulse buying at that level. 17 bux to buy a digital copy ment for a 4 inch screen.. lol. ill go rent the movie and burn it for a fraction of the cost, or wait till its in wallyworld's 5 dolla bins and do the same.
