Back at CES 2016 VIDGO TV was first officilialy announced to take on Sling TV. Now over a year later they are almost ready to go public. Today VIDGO TV announced that their service will soon be offered in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and NYC, and will be made available to all remaining areas later this year
VIDGO TV says they will have a long list of premium features including network DVR, Video on Demand, Pay-per-View, Catch-Up TV, Restart TV and an extensive HD channel lineup across a multi-screen platform.
“Working closely with Minerva and its eco-system partners, we intend to deliver an entertainment experience that will delight our customers,” said Winston Johnson, Chief Technology Officer at Gotham Media Corporation. “The Minerva platform provides us with the stability and flexibility we need to quickly introduce new services that will keep us ahead of the competition.”
“Gotham Media Corporation had some very specific goals and milestones related to their unique business proposition,” said Matt Cuson, Vice President of Marketing at Minerva. “Working closely with our partners, we created a solution that addresses all of Gotham Media Corporation’s short term goals and provides a platform for future innovations that support the company‘s growth plans.”
For now we have no date set but this is the first time we get some firm details like a list of launch cities. It will be interesting to see how they stack up. When their first launched only Sling TV was a national live TV streaming service. Now there is a long list of live TV service with more on the way. For cord cutters this is great news as competition forces everyone to get better and be more aggressive.
*Gotham Media is the parent company behind Vidgo.
