Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Gone are the days of searching across multiple apps to find something to watch on Android devices. Yidio, the largest streaming TV & movie guide on the web and in the iTunes App Store, is excited to announce the release of the Yidio Android app on the Google Play Store. The Yidio Android app allows users to easily search across the top TV & movie sites at once, in one comprehensive, fast and intuitive display.
“The launch of the Yidio Android app builds on the huge success of our iOS app launched last July. With over two million downloads and tens of thousands of TV shows & movies being watched daily, consumers have proven their appetite for consuming content anytime, anywhere,” said Brandon Eatros, CEO & Co-Founder of Yidio. “Mobile usage of our service has grown 5x that of the web in the past 12 months, and we’re excited to bring our app to the massive Android installed base.”
Announced during CES 2014, Yidio has partnered with LG Electronics on its 2014 webOS Smart TVs that allow mobile apps to seamlessly pair and provide connected, multi-device experiences. With the Yidio Android and iOS apps, users will be able to effortlessly launch selected content on LG’s next-generation Smart TVs powered by the webOS platform.
“We’re excited that LG customers will soon be enjoying a connected experience while using Yidio,” said Samuel Chang, LG Electronics USA senior vice president and head of LG Silicon Valley Lab. “With the new LG Smart TVs, Yidio users can discover then preview and launch content directly on the TVs. Our customers will love this seamless experience.”
“Our partnership with LG is just the beginning of where we see huge potential for Yidio. Not only will we be solving the massive content fragmentation across devices, providers, and locations, but ultimately we will solve the fragmentation that will exist across all connected device end points including the television and gaming consoles,” said Adam Eatros, COO & Co-Founder of Yidio.
