What's This?

Smartphones are becoming the one-stop solution for communication as well as shopping and entertainment. Considering everyone’s craze for this technology, companies are trying to pack everything into one device. Television is the latest addition. Yes, TV is going mobile. Verizon is the latest to enter the domain with Go90.


We are familiar with YouTube, Netflix and Hulu. But the catch here is that you need to subscribe to these services to enjoy videos and programs on your phone. YouTube still offers free video streaming, but now that you have to pay for YouTube Red, you get ad-free content that will soon be followed by exclusive content. This is where Verizon’s Go90 succeeds. It’s free.
