Viewdini platform will aggregate video content from free, paid services
At The Cable Show in Boston, Verizon Wireless on Tuesday announced it will soon release a new platform called Viewdini that will allow streaming of video content to subscribers of Comcast Xfinity, Hulu Plus, mSpot, Netflix, and TV sites to their mobile devices. Also, 4G mobile plans are required, and the service will only be available to Android-powered devices first, though support for other platforms is promised, as is content from Verizon FiOS.
Users will have the ability to search through the various content providers for a specific video, show, or movie via one interface. The search options will also include actor names or topics. More information such as cast and crew information as well as related titles will also be available with a single click.
The service is due to launch later this month and be available as a free app from Google Play. [Image via AllThingsD]
