New Streaming Service VIDGO Prepares for Launch, Promises to Let Subscribers Build Their Own Programming Packages (Cut Cable Today)

Promising news from Cut Cable Today,

VIDGO is a new online streaming service that was originally announced at CES 2016 with great promises (e.g. full selection of live locals, more channels than competitors, etc.) but few solid details about the specifics, such as a channel list, launch date, pricing, or list of devices it would be available on. In the months that have followed CES, all has been mostly quiet on the VIDGO front, until today. The company has just issued a press release announcing some truly exciting and potentially groundbreaking details about its launch, including options for subscribers to build their own programming packages, details about live local programming (VIDGO will be the first OTT service to offer PBS), and information about its huge sports lineup that includes NFL Network, MLB Network, local sports, and ESPN.

Now available in “limited release” (likely to a small, private beta test group from what we can tell) with a full public release expected in the near future, VIDGO promises to offer “high-definition streaming of live local broadcast (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and PBS), national content and sports on streaming devices like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, Android and desktop.”

And the thing that really intrigues us is VIDGO says it will allow its customers to “build your own programming packages.” Could this mean something that takes us a step beyond the skinny bundle into something more closely resembling an a la carte solution? Or is it something else?
