Samsung ue55c9000

The UE55C900 is full to the brim with features. It is fully network compliant and also offers access to the brand's own content portal, Internet@TV.


So not only can you access your media across your home network, pulling digital still images, music and video from PCs and NAS devices (there's support for JPEG, MP3, DivX, MKV and AVI extensions), you can also browse YouTube, check-in with Facebook and stream movies from LoveFilm. Samsung's own App store offers a range of simplistic games and more choices are promised for later this year.

UI streaming

Series 9 sets also ship with Samsung's ambitious Wi-Fi-enabled 'Touch Control' remote. This can be used in various ways, from standard controller to streaming TV viewer. For the latter to work you need to pair the remote to the Wi-Fi dongle, or your network at large.
