Samsung has announced the Samsung HomeSync, a home media hub that lets you stream movies, TV shows, music, games, and apps to your television.

Shared Storage for a Family
HomeSync’s 1TB drive can help you sync to multiple devices, providing shared or private storage for all your content. It supports eight separate accounts to cover a whole family, and allows each user to upload and download content from multiple devices and instantly share with other family members. File encryption and user-specific ID and password ensure content in a user’s private area remains separate from the shared area in HomeSync.

Entertainment on a Big Screen
The HomeSync brings the best of Android games, movies, TV shows and streaming content direct into your living room. It allows you to stream content from your Galaxy device wirelessly to the TV – letting you watch, see and use all your home videos, photos and apps, and all at a full HD 1080p.

Giving any HDTV new Smarts
Users can enjoy the full and familiar Android experience with HomeSync’s Jelly Bean media player and access to Play Store and all of your apps. HomeSync also enables new ways to interact with your content via the control modes enabled wirelessly on the phone.

HomeSync will be available from April 2013 in select countries and continue to expand globally.

Who did Apple copy then? I am sure there were products on the market before AppleTV, can't think what they were as they are all probably gone by now. just like the iPod, it wasn't the first mp3 player. Apple just have the ability to make it work in a mass market. So don't jump on the copy bandwagon...'nuff said.

doesn't play mkv. fail. Funny if people think Apple TV is the standard. Anything capable of running XBMC (jailbroken apple doesn't run it all that well) is legit. This shows promise though if it can run XBMC and if the codecs can be expanded through apps (to play mkv). Of course it'll need to play it smoothly as well. Also, notice the audio doesn't list dts?

Apple TV is a closes box. You cannot expand it's capabillities unless you jaibreak it. There isn't any usb port. You cannot use its processor to do anything more tha Apple thinks you should do. This Samsung box really smash Apple TV.

Apple TV box, does exactly what is stated & supposed to do. nothing more nothing less. Are you going with your porsche to IKEA to by new furniture? unlikely. Although IKEA has some nice parking lots (for free!)

The problem here is that Android is a terrible OS for a media centre or hub. I have tried virtually every android media centre and without exception, they are all terrible.
