French firm Technicolor has confirmed that it is planning to beta-launch its new multiscreen video service ‘M-GO’ in the US this summer, to be followed by a commercial launch in the autumn.
Greg Gudorf, Chief Operating Officer of M-GO at Technicolor, told our sister site Digital TV Europe (also published by Informa Telecoms & Media) that the venture will offer films for rental as well as titles for sell-through via an UltraViolet digital locker.
M-GO will initially offer a catalogue of “several thousand titles” that “will quickly grow” to between 10-15,000 titles, according to the company, which plans to launch it in Europe in 2013 if all goes well.
The company has teamed up with Samsung, Vizeo and Intel to preload M-GO on devices including Samsung Smart TVs, Vizeo TVs and Blu-ray players and Intel Ultrabook computers. M-GO will also be available on iOS and Android devices as a free downloadable app.
