Samsung Ministry of Sound app puts a banging donk on smart TV

Iconic London dance venue Ministry of Sound may be fighting for the right to party, but it’s found a new home on Samsung’s smart TVs.

The new app features exclusive video content including interviews and behind the scenes footage from the worlds biggest DJs, from house to dubstep, techno and trance.

It also lets users search Ministry of Sound’s music video catalogue using gesture and voice commands with everyday language, and share them to Samsung Galaxy tablets and phones.

Read Recombu Digital’s guide to Samsung Smart TVJames Garside of Ministry of Sound said: “We’re looking forward to giving dance music fans a taste of Ministry of Sound direct to Samsung Smart TVs. 

“Live From The Club on Ministry of Sound Radio is a unique offering that allows users to stay in tune with the world famous DJs that play here. New music is a key focus of what we do here. 

“Our A&R team continually spend time scouting new talent; all of which is available through our app, and it’s the only place you are able to access our entire music and video collection along with the rest of the live and on-demand Ministry of Sound Radio shows.”

As well as its constantly-updated video section and behind-the-scenes interviews, the app also streams live audio from Ministry of Sound every Friday and Saturday night.

The app is Samsung’s latest attempt to add a broad range of culture to Smart TV, following apps from Digital Theatre, the British Film Institute and the S[edition] high definition art gallery.

Guy Kinnell, director of TV/AV (UK) and consumer electronics (Ireland) for Samsung Electronics, said:  ‘’When you bring such musical heritage to the living room, viewers expect not only the very best in picture quality but superior sound too. 

“Our 2013 Smart TVs include built in subwoofers to provide a truly live music experience and with Samsung SoundShare technology, people can wirelessly stream high quality audio to Samsung’s family of quality audio products. 

“The new Ministry of Sound App enables viewers to feel part of the live music action and bring the club experience into the comfort of their own home.’’

The Ministry of Sound app is available on all 2012 and 2013 Samsung Smart TVs.
