Vidgo was first announced several years ago as a new live TV streaming service. This was back when Sling TV and PlayStation Vue was the only live TV streaming services on the market. Now Vidgo announces a new partnership with Harmonic to power their new live TV streaming service.
In the announcement, Vidgo also announced that they will offer “a low cost and to scale seamlessly. Vidgo’s offering will include over 40 channels of live television available for viewing on smartphones, tablets, PCs and other streaming devices.”
“We’ve identified a significant underserved market in the United States, with millions of consumers that are currently not part of the pay-TV ecosystem,” said Shane Cannon, CEO of Vidgo. “Partnering with Harmonic, the market leader in OTT video service deployments, we plan to deliver a full range of streaming features that consumers demand. The VOS solution allows us to provide the best live-streaming experience for our customers and provides us with a strong foundation to manage our network and end-user experience.”
“The VOS SW Cluster solution uniquely positions Vidgo to provide a best-in-class entertainment experience for customers,” said Tim Warren, senior vice president and chief technology officer, video business, at Harmonic. “We are excited to be a part of Vidgo’s innovative OTT service deployment.”
At this time no dates, pricing, or channel lineup have been announced for Vidgo. Hopefully, in the months to come, we will learn more.
