      Samsung 6 Series

      Hi.

      I looking to get a Sumsung LE37C650. It's part of the current Samsung 6 Series and allow you to watch on-line content, such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube.

      My question is whether or not it will allow you to watch content from Sky Player?

      There doesn't seem to be any confirmation on Samsung's website, but perhaps a firmware update might have resolved the issue.

      Re: Samsung 6 Series

      Ok, I managed to contact Samsung and they've emailed me back with a response.

      Sadly at the moment they do not currently have applications to allow their Internet@TV enabled televisions to watch Sky Player, ITV Player, 4oD or Demand Five.

      The answer didn't confirm or deny whether this would change.

      I may have answered my own question, but I hope that others will find it useful.

      I only just saw this thread, but i have had my LE46C650 for several months now.

      The BBC iplayer as you've found out is just an app, that lets you access the service.

      Its quite good, and even includes BBC HD, which isn't bad quality either.
      Not as good as through a Sat box, but not bad.

      There are other apps, the "muzo.tv" is quite good for music videos and "youtube" works well.
      There are loads more, but mostly a load of rubbish.

      Good luck with yor new TV

      Thank you for your response.

      Having the applications ready to download perhaps means that now everything is ready immediately, but does mean changes can be made during the course of the TVs life.

      I believe that viewing Internet content on your TV is something that will gradually take off more and more.

      The main issue in my mind appears to be making it usable with the size of a TV remote control, whilst keeping the remote usable for normal viewing.

      The reviews of the Samsung system appear to be very favourable in comparison to the others currently around.

      I hope that the BB providers can roll out better speeds and handle more bandwidth all around the country. I feel it is not fair that some should be able to get 40Mb/s whilst others can only get 56kbps on dial up.
