We've talked about Samsung's new Music Hub more than a few times already, but today is the official day. Samsung has now launched their Music Hub “3-in-1 mobile music solution” for the U.S. and it's available for most Galaxy S III phones. It was announced back in May, and has been available in the UK for a while but today we all can enjoy it.

For those interested in seeing more, we've already checked it out for you and you can see all you need to know from our Samsung Music Hub hands-on. The service is actually quite nice and brings some treats from Google's Music option, Spotify, and iTunes all into one offering.

Music Hub is a paid service so it will be taking on free options like Google Play Music, but it's been successful in Europe so why not try it in the U.S. too. What Samsung is offering is essentially three different options all for one low price of $9.99 a month. You can upload and enjoy your own music, stream from a catalog of 4 major record labels (similar to Spotify) or stream recommended content as well as your own music from the cloud.

For now it looks like international, AT&T, and US Cellular Galaxy S III's are the only ones that can enjoy this. So you can count out T-Mobile or Verizon. Those who sign up today get a free 30-day trial as well as one full album to instantly upload to your new Samsung Music Hub cloud. Give it a try today and let us know what you think.
