Verizon intros Viewdini mobile video aggregator, your wallet trembles with fear

0. phoneArena 22 May 2012, 12:59 posted on

Remember when Verizon's Chief Technical Officer said with the launch of the world's most advanced LTE network that we will be able to soon reach our dreams of streaming video wherever we are? Well, that time has come, and the carrier today introduced "Viewdini" - a mobile video streaming aggregator, which allows you to search for any movie, TV series or video clip in general, and will source it from the service it is available at - Netflix, Hulu Plus, Comcast's Xfinity, mSpot, and FIOS will be added soon...

its so confusing that they are pushing data caps and offering these services at the same time.

are they intentionally trying to screw people up? i know they need to make money, but they can do it honestly.

and does this service work over wifi? will the new ipad see this service?

Well that'll definitely save storage. I wonder how's the built-in player compared to dedicated video streaming apps.

Too late, the technical promise of Smart phones is dead and buried by the skyrocketing data cost to consumers. The IPhone was a flash in the pan. Rest In Peace.
Back to the days of text and voice... ha... take that VZW

I'm really hoping that Verizon FAILS BIG TIME. I know i'm jumping ship the second they tell me I don't have unlimited data on my three lines that I pay over $260 each month. O' and I get to break my contract without penalty. YEEEEEESSSS! #winning

Looks like mobile video streaming is taking more center stage on the backend as carriers really get into the mix. However, with all of these numerous video services in so many forms, why would any of us even consider yet another video service? I have Netflix and Amazon. I need not desire anything else.

this really seems more like a service aggregation software than a stand-alone service which should be much more interesting given the copious amount of services available like you already mentioned. o:
