Samsung GX-SM530CF Cable Box and Streaming Media Player with Built-In Wi-Fi Review
Introducing the Samsung Smart Media Player, the ultimate upgrade for any TV in your home. It serves as your cable box and gives you access to smart apps, including Amazon Instant Video and Netflix. All of it is controlled by just one remote to make your TV experience simple.
Replace Your Cable Box
Upgrading any TV has never been easier. The Smart Media Player not only makes your TV smarter, but also seamlessly integrates your cable box into one box, with one remote. It works with most cable providers, so no change is necessary, and it can even save you money: All you need is a cable card provided by your cable company, which costs less than the standard cable box and remote rental.* And unlike other media boxes, you never pay monthly service fees.
