Go90 marks the first time some cable-TV content is available to watch free on a phone without a subscription, analyst Rich Greenfield said. Participating cable-network companies are making some series' episodes available the day after they air. For example, Viacom will allow you to stream an episode of "The Daily Show" on your device the morning after it's broadcast. Previously, such programming may have been available on Netflix months later, or it might be available on Hulu the next day -- but not to watch on a mobile device without paying a monthly fee.
"It keeps making it easier and easier to cut or shave the cord," Greenfield said, referring to the consumer trend of forsaking a pricey pay-TV package like cable for a mishmash of online alternatives, Go90 marks the first time that Verizon will offer a service to everyone, including customers of rival carriers, The lion's share frÄ’ protective water-resistant case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - drop in of the content will be viewable on demand, Most of the video will be accessible to everyone, with a much smaller portion reserved only for Verizon Wireless customers, NFL games, for example, will only be available for Verizon subscribers because of the licensing rights involved..
Go90 also won't cut anyone special breaks on the data needed to stream this video. Even Verizon customers will have this streaming count toward their allotments of data. Earlier this year, Dish Network launched its Sling TV with small packages of live-TV channels delivered online for $20 a month, and Sony followed suit with an Internet-delivered collection of more than 50 channels called Playstation Vue. Cable provider Comcast is expected to roll out a free streaming service soon that focuses on shorter videos, those commonly associated with platforms like YouTube and Facebook.
Verizon's Go90 service is a mix of traditional TV content and digital-era video sources, Among Verizon's partners are Viacom, the parent of channels like MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon; and AwesomenessTV, a teen-focused video brand that evolved from YouTube, frÄ’ protective water-resistant case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - drop in The National Football League is also a key partner, although free streaming NFL games will still only be available to Verizon customers, Sharing is fundamental to how viewers will find things to watch on Go90, Unlike services like Netflix that lean on algorithms to suggest what you might like based on what you've watched previously, Go90 is set up so that you build your feed based on what you notice your friends are following and favoriting..
The service also allows watchers to easily clip a segment of a video to share via Facebook, Twitter, email or text message. Go90 builds upon Verizon's purchase of Intel's never-launched OnCue Internet TV business last year for an undisclosed sum. It also marks another example of Verizon moving more into media, becoming a company involved with the content you watch on your phone and not just providing the utility by which you view it. The company will use the digital-savvy advertising technology it obtained through its $4.4 billion acquisition of AOL in May.
