VIZIO brings M-GO online streaming to smart TVs

The M-GO streaming media service is expanding its reach with a roll out across VIZIO's smart TV platforms.

Available via the VIZIO Internet Apps and VIZIO Internet Apps Plus portals from the TVs, M-GO will give owners of VIZIO smart TVs and Co-Star streaming players unlimited access to M-GO's library of movies and TV shows, which the company says are often available earlier than via Netflix. For instance, the Ryan Gosling-Bradley Cooper's crime drama, the Place Beyond the Pines, is available now, as is Oblivion with Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman, and G.I. Joe Retaliation, starring Bruce Willis and The Roc. Users pay on a per-show or per-movie basis.

"We chose to partner with M-GO across our suite of devices because we believe they deliver an unprecedented digital entertainment experience," said Matt McRae, VIZIO CTO "With M-GO's breakthrough service combined with VIZIO's industry-leading Smart TV platform, we are proud to deliver a world-class entertainment experience for all."

For VIZIO consumers that have purchased their HDTV or Co-Star in the past year, an M-GO button at the top of the remote provides one-click access to the on-demand service.

"Making access to the movies and TV shows people care about easier is M-GO's mission," said John Batter, CEO of M-GO. "Going live on millions of VIZIO smart TVs and streaming boxes is a huge milestone in giving consumers the power to enjoy an entire world of entertainment at their fingertips."
