October 1, 2019

Vidgo, a prepaid live television streaming service, and Kiswe Mobile, a specialist in mobile video audience engagement, have published a new mobile app in the US that delivers a live social-streaming experience for sports, entertainment, family, and Latino programming.

Vidgo’s latest solution provides social features for live video that allow friends and family to interact together via a digital living room called ‘Hangs’ while watching TV on their mobile devices.

“We’re thrilled to launch Social TV to support Vidgo’s incredible programming. Finally, watching TV on your phone no longer means that you have to watch it alone. With Vidgo, we’re making live sports and entertainment something you can once again share with friends, even when they’re apart,” said Mike Schabel, Kiswe Mobile’s CEO.

The Social TV audience can join each other in public or private digital living rooms to watch their favourite content and feel connected to each other using a new live social screen that shares the audience’s animated GIFs, Memes, Polls, and Chat. This new mobile experience goes beyond the isolated experience of watching video today to a more unified and connected experience with friends and family”

The Vidgo service is available today at and at thousands of prepaid wireless storefronts across the United States. Customers can sign up today to experience social TV with 50 channels of national programming with a pre-launch special price of $14.99 per month. Additional sports and entertainment channels will be offered shortly.

“Vidgo wants to bring friends and fans together to watch live sports and television in a fun and engaging manner.” said Shane Cannon, Vidgo CEO. “Social TV is finally here.”

Customers can download the Vidgo app in the Apple or Google Play store.
