Are we finally past the days of mashing buttons on a remote control to find something decent to watch? Samsung certainly hopes so. With its freshly unveiled S-Recommendation system, channel surfing has never been better. Much like Apple's Siri functionality, users of Samsung's S-Recommendation system simply ask their televisions questions such as "Anything good on today?" and will be delivered content that evolves with the viewer's preferences and viewing history.
This isn't Samsung's first foray into voice recognition, having launched a similar feature for its Galaxy line of smartphones last summer. However, this is the first time a manufacturer has delivered voice recognition technology to televisions on the mass-market scale.
Not only will S-Recommendation be available for new Samsung televisions — customers that already own Samsung TVs will be able to purchase a kit that will upgrade their televisions to include the S-Recommendation technology.
