Samsung promotion goes live – get a SUHD TV and get a free Galaxy S6 to go with it!

Samsung just announced a promotion where, if you make a considerable purchase of a new SUHD TV, you will also get a free Samsung Galaxy S6. How much are you supposed to spend in order to get a $650 freebie? Not less than $1500 it appears. The promotion came live yesterday, on July 19th, and it will last until August 1st.

 

Samsung promotion

 

This move replaced the existing promotion which offered customers a free year of Netflix when buying a Samsung TV.

This promotion applies only to the SUHD TVs, which is the new brand of HD TVs from Samsung that uses nano-crystal color technology, a fair improvement from LCD screens, and an HDR feature responsible for improving contrast for supported content.

You can get a free Galaxy S6 if you buy one of the following Samsung SUHD TVs:

  • JS9500
  • JS9100
  • JS9000
  • JS8500
  • JS850D
  • JS8600

The cheapest device you can buy is the JS8500, discounted to $1500. The next cheapest TV is the JS9000 which has a price tag of $3500. After buying the TV, you can collect your gift if you go to SamsungPromotions. Com and fill out a form. You will have to wait up to 8-10 weeks before your free 32GB Galaxy S6 gets to you. You cannot opt for more storage even if you are willing to pay for it.

You could also get a Samsung S6 Edge with this promotion, but you would have to buy it separately through a carrier and get only $400 reimbursed. Considering the device is $100 more expensive than the S6, this would be a worse deal for you.

Google Ingress mobile game rumored to become TV show soon

Remember Ingress? The game that changed the face of the world coming from Google and Niantic Labs may become a TV show soon, if we are to believe The Information. The game has been steady in updates and storied content ever since it released in 2012 in beta form and now it may develop beyond the mobile platform realm.

 

Ingress

 

This little interactive experience could become more than just that as Google has partnered with Sean Daniel Co. to create a television show. Rumors say they are in talks for finding a showrunner at the moment. It appears that this move is not centered towards making more profit, but for extending the hybrid reality-fictional world beyond that of the game.

In ingress you take a side – you’re either Enlightened or Resistance – and try to conquer and protect portals located at real world locations in your town where you can meet allies and enemies alike. Hell, you can even try to make some awesome artwork on the map while you’re at it!

 

 

It appears that Google is also considering giving creative control to a non-YouTube venue when it comes to the production of the show, names such as Netflix and Hulu being thrown into the mix.

This is all a rumor at the moment, so take everything with a grain of salt. If the project does get greenlighted, would you like to see such an adventure?

Netflix increases prices by $1, current customers not involved… yet

Netflix decided to increase its prices for European and US citizens alike. The movie and TV show streaming service changed its price change for the new customers only for now, but that will not last for long and old customers will feel this increase in price soon. The $1 rate increase per month is not that much, but considering Redtube sells its service for $8 as well, some new customers could choose another streaming service much easier.

Netflix mentioned existing customers will not get a price or plan change for the next two years, but as comforting as that may be, changes are coming. For now, current customers will pay $7.99 per month for the service whereas new customers will be charged $8.99.
