Samsung's Media Hub video rental and purchase service hasn't exactly been setting the world on fire, but that's not stopping the company from steadily rolling out new features: it is now beta testing a new version of the Media Hub app that lets you share your media to Samsung Smart TVs. You'll need both a Galaxy S II smartphone and a 2011 Smart TV to join in, but assuming you fall into that rather specific group, you can sign up for a chance to be included in the beta program. It's not clear yet if this is direct streaming from phone to television, or a continuous client approach where the TV picks up where you left off, but it has the potential to be a nice feature complementing an already powerful product. Samsung's also throwing in a $25 gift certificate for purchasing media — all the better to calm the nerves of those who run into beta product kinks, no doubt -- so if you own both products and are feeling lucky, check out the source below to sign up.
