The rest of Samsung’s Media Hub getting the boot August 1

Samsung Media Hub - Android Apps on Google Play 2014-07-02 15-14-23 2014-07-02 15-14-31

Following the Samsung Music Hub officially getting shuttered yesterday, the Korean company is notifying its customers via email that the video and media counterparts of the hub are also getting shut down in less than 30 days (via Android Central). As for why this is happening, Samsung very plainly says it plans to “focus on some exciting new video products.”

Users are already unable to purchase and rent content from the service, and previously purchased content will no longer be available to download after August 1st. And while content will still be playable through the player, Samsung is asking that customers transfer their account to M-GO. According to the email:

All Samsung Video and Media Hub customers who transfer their account to M-GO will receive the benefit of an exclusive Welcome Offer valued at up to $13. By transferring your Samsung Video and Media Hub content to M-GO, you will be able to access your previously purchased videos from M-GO’s library at no additional cost. Once content is transferred, you will no longer be able to re-download content you purchased from Samsung Video or Media Hub.
