ROK Mobile and SeaChange International are launching an all-you-can-eat video service for mobile users in the U.S. in Q1 of 2016. The service will feature thousands of movies and television series as well as niche content ranging from animation for young adults to extreme sports. "What’s driving all of the announcements this week from Apple and Verizon is the rapid growth of mobile video viewing," Jay Samit, SeaChange CEO, tells Cynopsis. "SeaChange and ROK Mobile have taken the next logical step in pay-tv’s evolution with mobile premium video in a truly liberating 21st century experience that lets mobile subscribers watch the best available content wherever, whenever, and without a long-term contract." The video service will be an added value to ROK Mobile plans, which include unlimited talk, text, data and music. SeaChange is providing the OTT platform and mobile video content for iOS and Android.

Twitter’s red-hot live video streaming platform Periscope unveiled some updates Thursday, including landscape. In the latest version of iOS and Android, users can hold their phones either in portrait or landscape – no more head-tilting. Other new features include Share Context, indicating who shared a broadcast, and Mutual Follow, to make private broadcasting easier.

More and more marketers are honing in on Periscope, a platform that’s been called the missing link in social media. “Something I find particularly compelling about Periscope and traditional Television, is how the two can mutually complement and benefit the other,” says Dave Perry, VH1’s VP, Future TV and Cross-Platform Innovation, and a panelist at the September 22 Cynopsis webinar, Harnessing the Power of Periscope. “Leveraging the broad reach of TV with the 1-to-1 access that Periscope provides, some interesting opportunities arise when both platforms work in concert,” says Perry.
