Those people who have upgraded to a Samsung 3D TV but are frustrated that they kind of have no 3D content to watch are now going to get some content on demand - directly from their TV!
Samsung's 3D sets have their own online app store, just like the iPhone, that let users download programs like Hulu Plus and Napster directly to their TV's hard drive. Just yesterday, the Samsung Apps store added premium content, allowing developers to actually make money from the new app platform.

Along with that, Samsung said that it will begin offering 3D content through that app store. "In a couple of years, 3D streaming will be ubiquitous. This is just the first step to make that happen. The potential is pretty exciting," said Samsung director of content Olivier Manuel during a media event in New York.

Manuel noted that, eventually, offering 3D movies and 3D games could be possible over the store. It is worth nothing, though, that Samsung TV sets only have about 300 megabytes of storage in their internal hard drives.

For now, it will likely just be movie trailers and very quick snippets of 3D content that will be available, but Samsung's move to make it so available to its consumers marks another point in its leadership in the 3D TV market.
