Vidgo Partners with Float Left to Deliver vMVPD Service Across All Major Platforms

LAS VEGAS — Vidgo, an over-the-top (OTT) television streaming service offering popular live linear channels and VOD, has selected Float Left as their technology partner in delivering their premium vMVPD service across all major platforms such as Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Web, and iOS and Android Mobile.

The new and improved Vidgo app will offer their subscribers 40+ linear channels and a robust library of on-demand content – all at an affordable price without any contracts or box fees.

“The way people watch TV has completely changed in the past few years,” said Shane Cannon, CEO of Vidgo. “In this new environment, consumers expect to watch their favorite content across a multi-screen platform at home or on the go. Float Left provides Vidgo with the ability to serve all platforms, and deliver the best live streaming experience.”

Powered by Flicast, Float Left’s proven and deployed OTT solution, Vidgo will be built utilizing a high-caliber, native framework across all platforms. Float Left will also deliver a non-templated approach, allowing for customizable components, such as an intuitive EPG for Vidgo’s subscribers. Additional features will include a comprehensive set of analytics, providing Vidgo with an in-depth understanding of their audience’s viewing habits and other key demographics, as well as platinum level support, maintenance, and updates.

“The landscape for OTT is changing, and we are looking forward to working alongside Vidgo in developing an industry-leading service. As a virtual MVPD (vMVPD), Vidgo, will be built via our flexible, carrier-grade solution, Flicast, helping deliver a unified experience to their growing audience,” stated Tom Schaeffer, CEO of Float Left.

Vidgo is scheduled to launch a beta version in Summer 2018, across all major platforms.
