I grew up watching TV during weekends, could it be on Philippine free TV shows or DVD, I am definitely glued to it. That’s why when the CDOBloggers were invited to the first ever outside Metro Manila Samsung Smart TV launch, I told myself not to miss it and there you go I was there to witness the future of Television.
Samsung Philippines, the leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, invited a lot of influential VIPs in Cagayan de Oro, including the press people and their distributors who made this event possible. Better late than never, the event started with a buffet dinner and was entertained by a band.
After 30 minutes, the program started with Samsung introducing their new line of Smart TVs (LED ES8000 series, the LED ES7500 series and the Plasma E8000 series) and the three breaking technology:

We also threw a few questions to the Samsung people:
Vic: Is Samsung using DLNA(Digital Network Alliance Network) technology in transferring videos from a smart phone to the TV?
Samsung Representative: We are using the cloud technology in transferring files, Bluetooth for the 3D viewing.
CDOBloggers Bang: How much is the new Samsung Smart TV?
Samsung Representative: Php 230,000+ that comes with 2 years of TV parts and service warranty.
