Verizon launching Viewdini for 4G LTE Customers
If you remember back a week ago we posted an article about why Verizon might have wanted to buy up some spectrum. Well, if you are like me, you thought they needed that spectrum from SpectrumCo for possible cable services. With that being said, Dan Mead made and announcement at The Cable Show 2012, the National Cable & Telecommunication Association annual conference in Boston, about a new app that aims to simplify the customer experience and give our customers what they’re looking for. Mead said, “Verizon Wireless has the network to deliver the video choices our customers want with the quality and speed customers demand.”
Watching movies, videos and TV shows from your smartphone or tablet with the speed of the 4G LTE Network has come to fruition, a free app that makes finding what you want to watch simple and uncomplicated. Viewdini finds and collects content from some of the top content providers like Netflix, Hulu Plus, mSpot, TV sites, movie studios, Comcast’s Xfinity TV, Verizon FiOS and other cable operators. Customers can simply search for a title, topic, or star’s name, and Viewdini serves up which services have mobile video for streaming, whether it is available at no additional charge, by subscription, to rent or for purchase. The app also provides related content and information like cast and crew info and links to similar titles. Viewdini will be available on 4G LTE Android devices later this month, and other operating systems are expected to be added soon after. No love for Apple at launch.
