Comigo, an IPTV service provider, announced its Mobile Client Apps now support Google’s Chromecast, allowing OTT operators to offer live TV channels and video content via mobile devices and stream it to the TV with a customized user experience on the TV screen. The Mobile Client Apps already support Android and iOS-based smartphones and tablets.
As with any Google Chromecast-enabled mobile application, using Comigo’s Mobile Client Apps allows the viewer to select which content to watch and to stream it to the TV. In addition, when opening Comigo’s mobile app and connecting it to a Google Chromecast device, the end user will receive personalized and social-driven content recommendations on their TV screen, which can be navigated on-screen using the mobile app.
"Our innovative Mobile Client Apps give OTT players and broadcasters an opportunity to deliver their content to mobile devices and, on top of that, to harness Google Chromecast abilities to stream video through a customized user interface on the TV screen. This includes relevant content metadata and the ability to browse through personalized, recommended VOD, linear TV, and Internet videos, in addition to enjoying extended social features and interactive applications on companion mobile devices,” said Comigo COO Motty Lentzitzky in a statement.
