Samsung said to be close to launching a Netflix competitor
Original programming and content is all the rage these days, hot on the heels of Netflix's success with original series like Orange is the New Black. Still, sources familiar with Samsung's intentions, say not to expect a House of Cards. This is a reference to another popular original series for Netflix.
Samsung has closed down its Media Hub, which sold popular television shows and movies in competition with the Google Play Store. The decision to invest tens of millions of dollars in Volt is a sign that the manufacturer feels that such an offering could lead to more phone and tablet sales.
