Vivo is an internet-ready mobile phone. It was launched in the market by the name of "Telekinesis" in the second half of 2021. It has the features of a high-end smart phone, with a miniature screen, full QWERTY keyboard and a built-in camera. This unique phone enables Vivo users to watch their favorite live videos, television shows, and movies online. This is done by simply downloading Vivo onto the phone, accessing the internet through it, and turning on the Vivo software.
In the first phase, Vivo will allow its users to access their favorite online videos, and national live television shows on YouTube, Vimeo, MetaCafe, Hulu and Mezzanine. Vivo users can continue to watch their favorite movies and television shows online for the next 30 days. After that period, Vivo users will be required to register to a service, pay a one-time fee, and join the Vivo membership club to continue watching online videos. This is similar to services like AT&T U-verse or Verizon FiOS TV. Vivo is designed to provide an easy and fun way to view your favorite live or national television shows in high definition.
Vivo has a few limitations, which need to be overcome before it can fulfill its full functionality potential. First, Vivo is not yet capable of streaming media from web-based apps like Netflix. Second, Vivo can stream only from the Vivo interface and not from third-party apps. Third, Vivo does not have any local traffic in its network and therefore cannot stream media from apps like Netflix, Hulu, and Google Video. While Vivo can stream from anywhere, it can't stream from its own app or the Facebook and Twitter apps. Vivo will, however, support netbooks and tablets running Windows RT or Windows Vista.
If you're looking for a streaming media solution for the home, the Vivo model is really no replacement for something like NetFlix, HBO, or Showtime, but it does have its advantages. In addition to having the huge library of live and on-demand movies and shows, Vivo also offers a massive library of on-air programs, out-of-home programming, on-demand pay per view events, trailers for upcoming movies and shows, and other on-air and behind-the-scenes information. Vivo also supports multi-room multitasking, which makes it convenient for people who want to watch multiple shows at the same time while they're working or doing something else.
Vivo's biggest drawback is that it only streams from its own app, so if you don't have access to a cellular network or an internet connection, you won't be able to watch films on Vivo. Fortunately, Vivo is compatible with mobile networks via MMS, Bluetooth, GPRS, and USB. The Vivo Experience software can also be used on a laptop, provided that you have Bluetooth and USB ports available. For even more flexibility, Vivo allows you to watch films in either high definition or standard definition, as well as in "low-definition".
If you've never had the opportunity to watch movies on Telly, then Vivo is definitely a worthy option, especially if you don't mind paying a monthly fee. On the other hand, if you're already a subscriber to Hulu or DirecTV, you should strongly consider purchasing the Vivo to take advantage of all that it offers. There's no doubt that Vivo is a competitive product, and it could end up being a superior option to both Hulu and DirecTV, at least for the time being. Once the price difference between the Vivo and DirecTV brands becomes significant, it's very likely that customers will make their choice based strictly on value for money alone, regardless of the quality of service or entertainment provided.
