Users of Roku have been enjoying quite a bit of content as not only are they able to stream their own videos to the Roku set-top box, but the company has secured a number of streaming content providers to allow its users to be able to watch their respective content at any time. Today, Roku is adding another company to its already impressive catalog with M-Go.
If you’re unaware who M-Go is, the service is a joint venture of DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor as it currently offers 16,000 titles to rent or buy, with 20,000 titles expected to be available by year’s end. Not only will M-Go be included on Roku, but the service will have premium placement as Roku’s new home page will link directly to M-Go, making it extremely easy for users to browse and purchase content from M-Go. M-Go currently offers content similar to what’s available through cable provider’s on-demand services, such as Hangover 3, Breaking Bad, Glee and The Croods.
As of now, M-Go will come pre-installed on new Roku boxes with an update expected to roll out to current-generation Roku devices starting in October. There won’t be a need to input any additional information to purchase from M-Go as it uses a Roku user’s existing account and billing information, making it that much easier to rent or purchase content.
