By Mini Swamy, TMCnet Contributor
Verizon (News - Alert) Wireless, which touts itself as operating the nation's most reliable 3G network, has introduced viewdini, an innovative portal that gives customers greater entertainment choices, in its ongoing mission to enhance its services for its customers.
The service is a video mobile aggregator that allows consumers to search and view movies, television shows and other video on mobile devices, including video content from many leading content providers.
When customers search for particular video content, viewdini furnishes information on which services have mobile video for streaming, whether it's free or has to be paid for. It also provides interesting information about the cast and offers relevant links associated with the material.
"Working with a wide range of providers, we're giving our customers a simple and intuitive way to find shows, movies and other videos from the sources they have relationships with and discover new sources of video as well," Dan Mead, president and CEO at Verizon Wireless (News - Alert), said in a press release.
Viewdini uses the Verizon's LTE (News - Alert) 4G network to streamline access to videos from various content providers. With many more providers and support for other operating systems added shortly, a wider range of customers will have a greater range of choices and viewing options.
Mead also noted Verizon Wireless had the capacity to deliver the video choices customers want with the quality and speed customers demand.
The new portal is expected to be available to Verizon Wireless customers with 4G LTE Android devices shortly. The application can currently be downloaded from the Google (News - Alert) Play Store and is free to customers.
TMCnet reports Verizon Wireless is expected to bring the speed and capabilities of its 4G LTE network to 28 new markets and will expand the network in 11 additional markets on May 17. The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network will be available in 258 markets across the United States, covering more than two-thirds of the U.S. population.
