Samsung is set to roll out  new content kiosks in Europe in partnership with some of the biggest global movie studio’s  that will allow users of their mobile phones to download movie content direct to a phone.

The service which will compete head on with Apple’s iTunes and will also be extended to Samsung TV systems notebooks and MP3 and MP4 players in the future  as the Company launches new IP based TV display systems.   

Samsung said that they have signed content deals with Warner Brothers, Paramount and Universal allowing it to offer over 500 titles, including the The Dark Knight and television series such as E.R. and Friends.

The service will launch initially in Britain and Germany and be open to Samsung customers who own one of its internet-enabled smartphones such as its Tocco Ultra Edition. It is not known whether the service will eventually be launched in Australia.

Samsung says it eventually plans to expand the service to laptops, MP3 and MP4 portable music players and Samsung TVs.

Samsung Movies will use technology from Acetrax, meaning the content will be locked to the device its downloaded to, though users will be able to nominate other devices, such as mobile phones.

Prices will be between $4.99 and $9.95 for a first run movie.

Samsung says it will double its titles to 1,000 by the end of the first quarter and again to 2,000 film and television shows by the end of June.
