After quickly updating the app on our AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II unit, we’re quickly taken to the main menu where we’re presented with a carousel of featured items at the top – with menu items to get into My Media, Movie Store, and the TV Store...

So uhm... Samsung has finally caugt up with the Android Market, or HTC Watch, or Blockbuster on Demand... shall I go on?

Anyway, the part I'm most curious about... my Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been doing exactly this since I bought it two months ago. How exactly is this app being treated as fresh news?

Yeah, this is nothing new. It was on my Samsung Vibrant last year and it came on my Samsung Droid Charge with a $30 credit when I bought the phone new earlier in the year. Way to keep up with the times, PA.

Since you can only watch so many movies at a time during the month along with your other daily activities like work and such I think a monthly subscription is a way better way to go. If they offer just as much content that all the networks offer even hob and such I bet you could charge 30 to 60 dollars a month depending what channels you want just like cable and I bet people would like it. Basically I mean it would be the Sam as getting regular service from comcast but you can watch the stuff any time you want. And I mean all content. And on the free channels like NBC CBS abc and such there would be comercials. Another good idea would be to have an app that acts like your cable box that allows you to watch your cable channels live then also have access to all of the on demand stuff not just some of it. Basically just like having another tv in your house that you can take with you. My ipad2 or xoom would be even that much cooler to be able to watch the history Chanel live than switch to hbe to watch a show than NBC to watch the football game. Oh and network tv could have adds. All those ways would not only make the provider money but also it would be legal in the fact that with subscription charges and advertisement money all the copy written stuff or basically the networks would get there same amount of money that they get from cable.
