Samsung has been looking for fresh and new ideas to add to its portfolio. This is an act of diversity to make up for its drop in profits experienced recently. It has had many misses in the content consumption industry though, with examples such as Milk Music and Media Hub. You’d think the company had enough of this part of the market.
Surprisingly however, the South Korean tech tycoon is giving it another go with Milk Video. This seems to be a competitor to YouTube! Its Samsung’s attempt at providing consumers with a video service by allowing you to follow other video services (sounds like subscribing) and sharing your own videos. All you have to do is log in using your Facebook account. As of now, Milk Video is offering some curated content from a good handful of sources. The only sad part about it is you need a Galaxy smartphone to be able to use the video service. With this as a limitation, you’d wonder how much of a success Milk Video is going to be.
Well, before you dwell too much on that thought, it seems Samsung is already targeted for yet another lawsuit for using the name “Milk”. The suit was filed by Milk Studios – a photography and media company. The company had asked the tech giant to change the name of its media services for past few months but you know how stubborn Samsung can be. So is this the starting of the end for Milk Video? Another lawsuit marking the finish line of a Samsung effort to be different in its offerings? Let us know what you think in the comment section below! If you’ve used Milk Video or Milk Music, we especially want to hear from you!
