Samsung Kills Paid Apps24 Apr, 2014 By: Chris Tribbey
Samsung Electronics will no longer host paid-for apps in its Samsung TV Apps Store, and will refund consumers who did pay for apps via Samsung Internet-connected HDTVs and Blu-ray Disc players.
Apps where consumers pay for a service — including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, M-Go, Redbox Instant by Verizon, Pandora and Spotify — will continue to be available to owners of Samsung products.
Samsung said some paid-for apps will continue to be available to users, while for “applications that will be terminated, Samsung will provide a refund on request.”
“The paid apps termination only affects the paid applications that consumers purchased from the Samsung TV Apps Store,” the company announced on its website.
