Facebook, Google Maps Come to Samsung TV Apps

If you were the type of person to spend countless hours in front of a TV as it is, how much time do you kill now with the added video streaming and web access that today’s connected TVs deliver?

Or maybe you just plug away hours in front of your computer instead?

We keep getting closer and closer to a glorious combination of the two, so soon we’ll have no reason to leave the couch. Toward that end, Samsung wants to make sure you stay planted by bringing more cool services to its Samsung Apps platform, which was announced at CES this year.

Its latest two additions to the Apps lineup are a couple of cool time wasters you may have heard about—Facebook and Google Maps.

You can download the apps directly from all 2010 Samsung Blu-ray players, Blu-ray Home Theater Systems (HTIBs) and the majority of Samsung TVs with screen sizes 40 inches and bigger, the company announced.

We’re sure you’ll have a blast hosting guests for dinner parties, too, when you can pull up everyone’s Facebook pictures and then show them the aerial and street views of their houses on a big-screen TV.

And you thought staying up to date with Facebook on your tiny smartphone screen was cool.

Top 10 Blu-ray Releases for March 16

Some animation, for kids and adults alike, such as The Princess and the Frog and another season of South Park, lead the way this week.

What video content looks best in Blu-ray format? It’s tough to go wrong with stunning nature video. Usually broadcast TV shows are very clean. I’d still say it’s very difficult to outdo animation – look no further than Pixar, especially.

Unfortunately there aren’t any new Pixar releases this week, but there are some animated efforts that ought to sparkle on your combination of big screen and Blu-ray to highlight this week’s releases.

I’m partial to Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, which not only has the typical solid colors and sharp details, but also has a wonderful New Orleans style jazz soundtrack to get you and your kids dancing.

Astro Boy is another of this week’s releases that should look dazzling, and even has the wider 2.39:1 original aspect ratio, along with voice talents like Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron and Nicolas Cage. And if you still want to watch some animation once the kids are in bed, the 13th season of South Park features its long-standing very basic animation to accompany the mature jokes and plots.

Fast-paced action movies are also en vogue this week, with the likes of Armored and Ninja Assassin sure to pump your theater full of testosterone.

And if that’s not enough to get it rockin’, well you can pop in the latest concert video from The White Stripes – Under Great White Northern Lights – that follows Jack and Meg on their 2007 tour stops in Canada.

Here are all the releases for this week (slideshow synopses and schedule courtesy of Blu-ray.com):
