Vinson Launches ‘Over The Top’ Mobile Television App for iOS


Vinson focuses on improving the mobile TV experience, and this week the company is launching its Over The Top TV app on iOS at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, according to The NextWeb. The app features a full TV guide, videos on demand, PVR/time-shifting and a “friends” component which allows users to see what their friends are watching and commenting on.

Vinson CEO Michael Plein says that current mobile TV experiences are overpriced and outdated. The Vinson app is cloud-based, responsive to touch, and is also offered as a ‘white-label’ product for broadcasters, content aggregators and content distributors to construct their own preferences around.

Plein previously founded Layar, a web-application that simplifies adding digital content to print media.
