Samsung is holding its first Free the TV Developer Day in the U.S. The Free the TV Challenge is part of a global rollout of developer-focused contests and events led by Samsung around the globe that open up TVs to developers wanting to distribute their content on the biggest screen in the home and on an easy-to-use platform. During Free the TV Developer Day, developers will learn more about the SDK and how to enter Samsung’s Free the TV Challenge to create the most innovative applications based on the Samsung Apps platform. Developers entering the challenge are eligible for the winning prize valued at half a million dollars and also have the opportunity to reach audiences in about 120 countries, where the service has been introduced.
The Challenge is open to U.S. residents of the 50 States (including the District of Columbia), as well as organizations employing fewer than 50 people that are domiciled in the United States – see www.FreeTheTVChallenge.com or more in this official PR
