DDD Group plc (AIM: DDD; OTCQX: DDDGY), the 3D solutions company, has extended its dedicated 3D Video-On-Demand subscription service to be available on Samsung 3D Smart TVs in the United States. Samsung has started rollout of the service this week.
Yabazam launched its 3D subscription service for LG 3D TVs in early January, marking the first 3D movie service of its kind.
The Yabazam service costs $9.99 per month and allows unlimited viewing of the original 3D programming available from Yabazam. The Yabazam 3D app is available through the television’s Smart Hub™ content portal and can be used on the full range of Samsung 3D Smart TVs.
Yabazam features a wide variety of 3D content, including independently produced 3D movies, documentaries, music videos and animated features from producers around the world. DDD is aggressively growing the range of 3D programs available on Yabazam and is releasing new 3D titles on a weekly basis.
Chris Yewdall, CEO of DDD, said: “Samsung has been an innovator in 3D technology and a leader in 3D television sales. We’re excited to expand our Yabazam 3D subscription service to a brand that appreciates 3D and to its customers who have shown great interest in watching compelling 3D entertainment in the comfort of their living rooms.”
Yabazam titles are available for rent outside of the US using the free Yabazam 3D video streaming app, which is available on Samsung 3D Smart TVs in 12 countries and LG 3D Smart TVs in 13 countries. The US is the first market in which DDD offers the subscription service.
The Yabazam 3D app has been downloaded over 260,000 times and averages more than 2,000 3D movie viewing sessions per day.
