Samsung Smart TV App
So I have recently been considering becoming a subscriber to watch anime off the site. However, the most convenient way to do this for me would be an app on my TV as I do not own a Roku. I stumbled across this link (http://www.funimation.com/blog/?p=874) which points to a Samsung app being released in late July or early August of 2013. I cannot find any other reference to the app or the app itself anywhere else. Does anyone else have any news on this? Has the app been abandoned?
Welcome to the forums Bwise :)
It looks like the plans for a Samsung Smart TV App were delayed and no further news on it has been released.
You should look around on the forums a bit before starting new threads, there are A LOT of the same posts with the same question you asked.
EDIT: The last official update was on one of the links I posted below. On 06-12-2014 CJ said "I do not currently have a release date for the Samsung app, or for any other app, at this time."
Thanks for the quick response. As to not looking on the forums before hand I did do many Google searches. I thought that since they didn't appear in my search results that it just wasn't currently being discussed (which I found odd). Next time I'll just search directly on the site. Thank you for the help. I suppose I'll just have to hook up my PC to my TV for now.
No problem, I'm not sure if you saw this in my last post because I edited just a few minutes ago but there was an update I found.

If you don't feel like waiting around for an app to come out you could get a roku streaming player, bestbuy has them on sale this week for only $40 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/roku-1-streaming-player/1618055.p?id=1219057250674&skuId=1618055&st=roku&cp=1&lp=5
But be aware that the Funimation app on Roku does not link up to your queue!
