Samsung takes on Apple TV with the HomeSync media streamer

Samsung HomeSync

The news from MWC is already starting to break: along with the Galaxy Note 8.0, Samsung has also introduced a new living room device called the HomeSync. On one hand, it's a media streamer that hooks up to your television and lets users stream photos, videos, and apps from their Galaxy devices to their television — at 1080p resolution. However, it's also a storage device unto itself with a 1TB drive for storing content. The HomeSync can support eight different accounts for different members in the household, and private accounts can be encrypted so one family member can't see another's content. The device will be available in April of this year, though there's no pricing information just yet.
