Video streaming is a big deal right now, but every different type of streaming has its own service. For shows, we watch Netflix or Hulu. For user content, we watch YouTube. For gaming, we use Twitch. But Verizon is aiming to create a service that encompasses a lot of those categories with a social twist.
The service is called go90, and it’s aimed specifically at mobile. It currently features over 8,000 titles and 35 exclusive series, with much more coming by the end of the year. It looks like Verizon nabbed quite a bit of support for this service, though we’ll see if it’s enough.
It also features a lot of social features. Sharing features include cutting pieces of clips and sending them to friends or even starting a “Crew” for your friends to share interests. It seems like a heavy push towards social, but is that what people want?
This service isn’t Verizon exclusive, though Verizon data caps will surely keep it back. You can now download the app for iOS andand check it out for yourself. It’s free, so it’s worth a shot. Let us know how you like it!
