The 55” UN55C8000 sits right underneath its larger sibling, the 65” UN65C8000. Both units utilize a temporary design with LED edge lighting. More importantly, they host Samsung’s recently expanded Internet@TV service, which now allows users to stream content from Blockbuster, Netflix, USA Today, and VUDU video on demand. Plus users can access other Internet applications/services like Twitter, Pica, AccuWeather, and Pandora either by the integrated Ethernet connection or via an optional WiFi adapter.
