M-GO Signs Studios, Will Offer UltraViolet11 Sep, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
M-GO, an entertainment application backed by Technicolor and DreamWorks Animation, has signed on five of the six major film studios, and will offer content day-and-date with disc when it launches later this year.
Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Paramount and Universal will all offer new-release and catalog content for both rentals and electronic sellthrough.
M-GO is expected to be available on most all consumer electronics platforms, as a download via iTunes and Google Play, and will be preloaded on Samsung’s lineup of 2012 HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players and tablets; Vizio’s 2012 HDTVs, Blu-ray players, tablets and digital media players; and Intel Ultrabooks.
“M-GO’s unique offering has allowed us to secure business wins with the leading companies and decision-makers in both the technology and entertainment industries,” said M-GO CEO John Batter. “Partners choose us because of the value M-GO brings to the marketplace by providing massive amounts of quality film and TV content on the devices people already use.”
M-GO will also serve as a UltraViolet retailer, offering streaming and downloading of titles enabled with the buy once, play anywhere cloud-based licensing system.
