Swedish entertainment company Voddler, which offers paid video-on-demand service which offers movies and TV programming has launched an free to download Android app for its advertisement funded movie service. Until this release on Android OS , the streaming TV and movie service, which is available in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, was only available through a browser or through its P2P-based desktop application.
Like most of its competitors, both free and paid programming is offered, free content is ad-supported. The content draws from the libraries of Hollywood studios such as Walt Disney, Paramount, Warner Bros. , MGM, and Sony Pictures. However, the Android app is currently being tested in a version limited to movie trailers by a group of Voddler users.
The first version of the full Android app will be released to all users in May. It will enable users to play content, share playlists on social networks, apart from an ability to control PCs and TVs from their mobile phone. Voddler says it is also working on a version of the app for Android based Televisions.
“Because Voddler is working with a cloud computing solution with movies stored in the cloud, seamless integration between different screens and platforms is simple,” says Voddler CTO, Stefan Anjou. “Today, we stream our movies to PCs and provide the best picture and sound quality available on the market. We aim to do the same thing for mobile phones, and later, for internet-connected TVs.”
