Samsung Pay on TV

Ahead of the imminent global launch of Samsung Pay, Samsung has announced that it is bringing the payment service to its smart TVs. The feature allows you to conveniently buy content directly from the TV. All you have to do is set a PIN during the initial registration, browse to the item you wish to purchase, press the "Pay Now" button, and enter the four-digit PIN.

Included is support for major credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, as well as other mobile billing options. If you're rocking a Samsung smartphone, you will be able to transfer your credit cards, debit cards and PayPal details stored on your Samsung account by signing in to the TV. The service will be rolled out to select models in Samsung's 2015 and 2014 range of smart TVs.

We'll likely get a better look at how the feature works at Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event in New York on August 13. Until then, what are your thoughts on purchasing content directly from the TV?
