Samsung Electronics has partnered with the Tesco-owned Blinkbox to enable owners of its connected TVs to access more than 9,000 movies and TV shows via video on-demand.

A Blinkbox application is now available from the Samsung Smart TV App store, enabling users to watch hit films and TV programmes, such as Luther and Doctor Who, for free, via rental or download-to-own. Many new movies will be available from the app on the day of their DVD release, said Samsung.

"By adding more partners to our Samsung Apps store, we are opening the door to thousands of hours of top-quality entertainment for viewers," said Guy Kinnell, the marketing director for TV at Samsung UK.

"Our partnership with Blinkbox will ensure Smart TV users can quickly and easily view more of their favourite films, TV shows and movie trailers enhanced by the true-to-life picture quality and revolutionary product design of their Smart TV."

Michael Comish, the chief executive and co-founder of Blinkbox, added: "The Smart TV platform is constantly growing and it's the perfect place for our app to be available on.

"Our partnership with Samsung will allow us to be available to more people than ever before as well as giving our existing users a richer more accessible viewing experience. Samsung Smart TVs have an intuitive interface and make watching TV online easy, fun and even more entertaining."

Blinkbox joins a range of already available applications on Samsung Smart TVs, including BBC iPlayer, Facebook, Twitter, Google Talk, subscription movies service LoveFilm and Muzu.tv. The platform also offers a raft of 3D content via a partnership with YouTube.
