Verizon Bows Mobile Video Search App23 May, 2012 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Verizon Wireless has launched a new video service called Viewdini that allows Android-based mobile phone users to locate repurposed movies and TV shows available on subscription video-on-demand services and TV and cable websites.
Verizon CEO Dan Mead May 22 announced at the National Cable and Telecommunications Association’s confab in Boston the platform, with partners at launch including Netflix, mSpot (recently acquired by Samsung) and Hulu Plus.
Viewdini acts as a content user guide enabling mobile viewers the ability to see if a particular movie or TV show is available for streaming, transactional VOD or electronic sellthrough.
The app, which is available for free to Verizon subscribers, can be downloaded from Google Play (formerly Android Market) and will be accessible on 4G LTE Android devices some time this month.
