While YouTube begins its grand experiment with paid subscriptions, Samsung is jumping into the video-streaming world with its own app for Galaxy devices. Milk Video is essentially an extension of the company’s recently released Milk Music streaming service.
Milk Video aggregates video content from all over the Web and categorizes it based on your preferences. The service has a strong social component and focuses on helping users discover new videos that they’ll love. Samsung signed up a bunch of video content creators to launch the app, including VICE, Red Bull, Vevo, Funny or Die, College Humor, Tastemade, AwesomenessTV, Refinery29, GQ, and more. The Korean company also promises that original series and exclusive content are on the way. Much like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video, Samsung hopes to gain users with the promise of videos they won’t be able to find anywhere else.
Milk Video is available in the Google Play Store, but it will only work on the following devices:
- Galaxy S3
- Galaxy S3 Mini
- Galaxy S4
- Galaxy S4 Mini
- Galaxy S5
- Galaxy Note 2
- Galaxy Note 3
- Galaxy Note 4
- Galaxy Mega
For now, the service is free and there are no ads, but it’s only available in the United States. Samsung didn’t say whether the Milk Video app will launch on iOS and become available to other Android users. The company also didn’t say whether it plans to turn Milk Video into a paid subscription service in the future, but that seems likely, seeing as Milk Music recently went down that route. Samsung just needs to build a user base first and convince those viewers that they can’t live without Milk.
