South Korea’s largest mobile carrier SK Telecom has said that it will release a version of Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphone that can also serve as a set-top box, playing content from its Hoppin video on demand service. The Hoppin service also allows viewing on personal computers, tablet PCs and TVs.

The phone can be connected to a TV screen to allow streamed content saved on the phone to be displayed on the television’s larger screen.
