Samsung announced today the opening of Samsung Movies, an online store where the firm's customers can download movies and other content onto their Samsung cellphone. The store is expected to offer access to the latest Hollywood releases such as The Dark Knight and Ironman and will also include some hit T.V. series like ER and Friends. Special television shows will be offered that will allow Samsung users to have a "first look" at the content. While the press release mentions the UltraTOUCH as a device that will support the service, it is expected to be available on many more models. The service is powered by Acetrax, a digital movie retailer that has agreements with major film studios and independents for downloading content. The service, which can be accessed at www.samsungmovies.com, will be initially started in the UK and Germany before reaching other European markets by the end of the year. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on a possible U.S. rollout. 500 titles will be available at launch with another 500 being added at the end of the first quarter followed by 1,000 more added by the end of June. Each movie will cost 2.49GBP ($3.6) to rent for 24 hours, or 4.99GBP ($7.25) to own.
