Consumers will have yet another way to shop with HSN. The interactive multichannel retailer will offer the HSN Shop by Remote app on select 2010 Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray players and Home Theater Systems through the upgraded Internet@TV – Content Service. The HSN Shop by Remote app will allow viewers to access live streaming HSN video and make purchases using their remote controls.

Samsung’s upgraded Internet@TV feature includes Samsung Apps, providing consumers with an expanded, easy to navigate selection of content and applications from leading services that span video, information, lifestyle, games, and sports.
