updated 06:33 pm EDT, Sat May 24, 2014

Services closing in response to poor adoption, refocusing efforts

Samsung is discontinuing service for it's Samsung Hub e-book and music services on its devices for most of the world, effective July 1. Seeking "service differentiation and customer value enhancement," the reduced Samsung Hub service will be limited to education, video, and gaming venues.

The service was launched alongside the Galaxy SIII phone, and was touted as a feature of the device. The service was not loaded onto the Galaxy S5. Powered by Samsung acquisition mSpot, the music service was also available through a browser-based app, and on up to five devices.

Samsung's South Korean customers will not see the service closed, as the company holds a commanding lead in the country. Additionally, Samsung's US-centric "Milk" music streaming service will remain open.
