After years of hacking together make-shift television devices through PC TV tuners cards, wall projectors and more I finally decided it was time to buy my first “real” television. After researching the market and evaluating what mattered the most to my appetite for quality with an app world, it became clear that Samsung was the right choice for me (I’m now the proud owner of a UN55H7150AFXZA 1080P).
It’s not surprising that “Samsung continued to hold its #1 spot in the United States Smart TV market in Q4 2013 with a 29.6% market share,” according to Strategy Analytics. From the somewhat gimmicky but extremely entertaining 3D viewing to the Smart Hub it became clear that I was experience social TV in an extremely new seamless experience that even my set-top TV connected devices couldn’t accomplish. As more consumers begin to experience Samsung’s smart TV world, using social will become more natural than ever before. We spoke with Dave Das, Vice President of Home Entertainment at Samsung about the way the company is changing social TV.
