Technicolor unveils M-GO cloud-based media storage app

Technicolor has unveiled a free app, M-GO, that offers cloud-based streaming rental or download to own from movie catalogues from participating Hollywood studios yet to be announced.

M-GO provides seamless access to a user's collection of movies, music and apps across all connected devices. The app also supports live TV either via a Blu-ray player or by connecting directly with the TV operator.

M-GO can also be used with smartphones or connected tablets as a premium second-screen experience, when watching TV.

It will launch this spring in the US on hardware from Samsung, Vizio and Intel.

M-GO will come pre-loaded on Samsung's 2012 Smart TVs and Blu-ray Disc players and will be accessible on Galaxy tablets. While watching a movie on the TV, users can simultaneously get bonus content, such as deleted scenes and games on their connected Galaxy devices.

M-GO will also come pre-loaded on Vizio's televisions, tablets, Blu-ray players and stream players that are part of the VIZIO Internet Apps Plus ecosystem.

The new app will be available as well on Intel Ultrabooks through Intel AppUpSM center

The UltraViolet-friendly app is free, and Technicolor takes a fee from each rental or purchase. M-GO is the first consumer product to emerge from MediaNavi, a search and discovery platform launched at last year's CES.
