Go90.com was a mobile application built for video streaming created and operated by Verizon Communications, but which is available for any US based mobile user on any mobile network.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, this new video streaming mobile app has been designed by Verizon to help users follow their favorite shows, channels, genres, or celebrities and personalities.
In addition, they’ve added a social component to their application, creating a user’s newsfeed which will display the newest episodes and clips of that users chosen shows and genres, as well as a feature which allows them to share the clips they’ve created from their favorite shows and videos on social media, comment on the videos, and create groups with other users which are called “crews” and which allow users to discuss and share videos on the app itself.
Currently this mobile application is still in the early stages of its release, so they aren’t showing all the content at this time which they promise they will eventually offer their customers. Still, Verizon does report that they have content deals with at least 50% of the most watched cable networks and they do plan to show more than 900 live sporting events each year.
Customers who are also use the Verizon Network as their mobile service provider will also get access to exclusive content available to no other users, including content from AwesomenessTV and Vice News.
Currently this app is available on both iOS and Android platforms on devices with the appropriate software upgrades and requirements.
At this time, the Go90 mobile application is free of charge to users on any platform and from any mobile carrier. Since Verizon will only be able to earn money from the data usage of their own Verizon customers, the goal of the company is to earn money from the advertising which will take place on the app.
Since this company isn’t currently charging their customers any money for the download and the use of their mobile application, they also do not offer any Refund Policy at this time. If a customer chooses to make a purchase from a company, ad, or offer that is being promoted through this application, it is considered an “in app” purchase, and as such it will be held to whatever policy is put in place by either iTunes or Google Play.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by contacting them through their social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter.
As mentioned above, this mobile application is still in the very early stages of its launch and at this time appears to only be offering around 25% to 30% of the content they will eventually be providing for their viewers. And while the app appears to work really well, as far as video loading and viewing is concerned, the real test of any streaming app is whether or not the content is desirable to their viewers.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Certainly there are many, many different available streaming services like TelevisionFanatic.com, MovieLush.com, BringMeSports, and more, but not all of these services are available with mobile streaming at this time. Customers who are looking for alternatives to Go90 should look for those that are best supported by their platform and their provider.
