Go90, Verizon’s much-anticipated mobile OTT video service, is debuting soon. Maybe *this week* soon. And maybe even today soon. The telco giant launched a splash page for Go90 last week, urging customers to “go90 to watch, cut & share all the awesome.” Variety caught another interesting detail: ever-so-briefly, the website’s customer agreement included this tidbit: “Effective date: September 8, 2015.” The date was swiftly removed, and Verizon hasn’t commented on when Go90 will launch. We might know very soon.
Speaking of Go-90, Verizon just bagged a ton of a ton of new digital content. The company has inked a deal with Machinima: Starting in 2016, the multi-channel network, known for its YouTube channel, will supply Go90 with 100 hours of original programming, as well as 40 hours of curated content. Meanwhile, Machinima is launching Machinima Studios, a division devoted to original content creation.
