Vongo went live earlier this year and offers Windows users broadband access to over 1,500 movies and a streaming Starz TV channel for $9.99 a month, as well as selected pay-per-view titles for $3.99. Users can transfer the selections to as many as three devices (other computers, portable players, etc.).
The new agreement with AT&T sets up a co-branded AT&T and Vongo site from which AT&T high-speed Internet customers can download the Vongo software and try the service for free for 14 days.
“We are delighted to work with AT&T as the first broadband distribution partner for Vongo,” said Bob Greene, senior vice president of advanced services for SEG. “This relationship is a major step toward realizing our goal of building a complete ecosystem for digital-movie enjoyment so that consumers can access their favorite content whenever and wherever they want.”
The deal marks AT&T’s second recent move into providing video content to its customers via the Internet: last week, the company announced plans to integrate services from video-on-demand provider Akimbo into its AT&T Homezone set-top boxes.
