If you buy this year’s Samsung TV model, you get a special gift in the form of a subscription to Internet TV. The bonus applies to the highest QLED, Premium UHD and UHD series. The higher the model, the better the package you get. The packages include subscriptions to Kuki, Voyo and HBO Go Internet TV. The event runs until the end of 2018.
Good news for new TV buyers or the ones who are planning to buy a new TV in 2018. If you are planning to buy Samsung TV in 2018, then you can get a subscription to many channels for free. Samsung has launched a special offer on its select TV models, so if someone was waiting for the right time to buy a Samsung TV, then that time is now.
For UHD models (NU71xx to NU73xx series), you will get Kuki for two months. For Premium UHD models (NU74xx to NU8xxx series), besides Kuki for three months, Voyo TV. The highest bonus awaits the owners of the QLED TVs, those to Kuki and Voyo will still receive HBO Go for half a year. Kuki runs Smart Comp, a company behind Netbox, together with Planet A (behind AIM). Voyo is Nova TV.
In the case of Kuki, there will be a tariff plan with 70 stations and a 2-day retrospective. However, the regular tariff Kuki Greater has 60 channels with a weekly view at a price of CZK 400 per month (without HBO). This is a slightly adjusted offer for Samsung, which differs slightly from the Kuki tariffs.
Samsung is gradually adding IPTV (OTT) to Tizen. Currently, Kuki, Better.TV, WatchTV, ModerniTV (which is overwhelmed by WatchTV, with other tariffs and prizes), 4Net.TV (a solution used by O2 TV) and Skylink TV (IPTV Satellite Broadcast).
The actual IPTV / OTT is only Kuki from the three. Voyo will give you access to New and HBO Go content logically to HBO content. For all of these Samsung models, all three Internet TVs will be launched without a set-top box. You probably will not get the subscription, but you cannot write about the limitations so you can watch the broadcasts in addition to the Samsung TV on multiple devices at the same time. Typically on a computer and on a mobile or tablet.
From Samsung, it is a pretty nice and useful gift (even if I could imagine a better combination of IPTV), just nonlinear television is one of the elements that make the TV still useful. Who only has an antenna on the roof at home, the new modern TV will probably not buy.
Out of all the channels, the one that intrigues me a lot is HBO Go because there is a huge repertoire of digital content available on HBO Go channel that the company should charge heavily. But instead, the subscription of HBO Go is not that expensive, and now, Samsung is offering free subscription, people don’t have to pay that much amount as well.
