Well we told you this a couple of days ago but, since have been good enough to confirm a few more details, we'll say it again - FetchTV is coming to Samsung Smart Hub equipped TVs.

The new FetchTV video-on-demand app, available early next year, will give Smart TV users access to an extensive library of content including the latest blockbuster films and indie cult classics through to TV series, documentaries, music concerts, extreme sports, children's shows and catch up television.

FetchTV's content will be available on a pay as you watch system rather than a monthly subscription fee ensuring Smart TV users simply pay for premium movies and TV shows whenever they want them. Mini-subscriptions to genre-specific channel packages will additionally be available.

Guy Kinnell, Marketing Director for TV, Samsung UK, said: “From video-on-demand movies through to popular TV series, our partnership with FetchTV will ensure Smart TV users never miss a moment. Complement this with an easy–to-use Smart Hub that opens up content from Apps, the internet and other access points to the TV plus our One Design ultra-thin brushed metal bezel, movie buffs and TV fans will have the ultimate viewing experience, all from the comfort of their living room.''

Eddie Abrams, CEO of IP Vision, provider of the FetchTV service, said: “We are thrilled to further grow the reach of FetchTV via our launch on Samsung Smart TVs. Combining the capabilities and benefits of broadcast TV with those of broadband, Smart TV delivers unprecedented choice and convenience for consumers, and we're excited that FetchTV will be part of the new connected entertainment experience for Smart TV owners.”

FetchTV will join an ever-growing collection of services available on Samsung Smart TVs such as BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Teletext Holidays, Facebook and Twitter and they're understandably keen to tell us that ‘Samsung Apps' is the first and biggest App store available for TVs, with over 10 million Apps already downloaded worldwide.
