M-Go strikes UltraViolet deals with Hollywood
M-Go, which seeks to launch a digital storefront for movies online, has announced deals with five of the top six Hollywood studios that will allow it to sell UltraViolet-enabled movies and play them back on a number of connected devices. The deals were done with NBCUniversal, Paramount, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros, and will include rental and purchase of new films on the same day and date that they become available on Blu-ray and DVD.
M-Go is a joint venture between Technicolor and Dreamworks, and was shown off earlier this year at CES and SXSW. The idea is to create apps that will work across multiple devices, including tablets and smart TVs. Already, M-Go has struck deals to have its apps loaded on Samsung and Vizio TVs, Blu-ray players, and tablets. It’ll also be available on Intel ultrabooks and other devices.
