Update: VIDGO has removed the MLB Network from their lineup.
VIDGO was first announced at CES 2016 but very few details have been released since then. Now VIDGO has released some new details on what you can expect from them including the NFL Network.
One of the big selling points for the service will be an automatic cloud DVR that will, in their words, “record everything” so you “never miss a show.”
VIDGO will offer high-definition streaming of live local broadcasts, national content, and sports on streaming devices such as Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, Android, and desktop.
The following comes from their press release:
- Build your own programming packages
- Live linear local channels in select initial markets—ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS
- National content providers—Disney-ABC, Discovery, and many other networks
- Sports—ESPN, NFL Network, live local sports content
- Video on demand including first-run movie titles
- Automatic cloud DVR: record everything, never miss a show
- Favorites menu bar for quickly accessing your most-watched channels
- Access to full programming lineup on-the-go or at home via Wi-Fi or 4G connection
- Multiple simultaneous device streams with each package
- Local channels in select initial markets including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, and San Francisco
At this time this is all we know about VIDGO but their announcement is good news for cord cutters. VIDGO will be the sixth nationwide live TV streaming service to be released in the last two years. As competition grows it will only be good for cord cutters.
