Yamgo TV launches New Entertainment Service
10/20/2015

Free online TV network Yamgo offers range of more than 130 channels

Online PR News – 20-October-2015 – Swansea – Swansea, UK - Yamgo TV announces the release of a new channel line-up, website design and user interface for its TV and video service. Created with viewer experience firmly in mind, the new look website has been created to make it compatible with today’s desktop and mobile browsers. The service is web based which means that users do not need to download heavy apps to their devices.

The website now features a new user interface which showcases what channels Yamgo TV offers in the form of an electronic programme guide (EPG). Through the enhanced EPG, users of Yamgo can navigate through the 130+ channels that Yamgo has to offer while watching one of the channels. Detailed content descriptions and the search function help users find the show that they would like to watch.

The channel line-up ranges from live news in several different languages to movie channels, music compilations, funny and bizarre videos, documentaries and Bollywood entertainment. Yamgo’s eclectic mix of channels has already attracted a global audience which the company is looking to grow by capitalising on the latest smartphone technology whilst also offering a light-weight version of its service to users in regions where smartphone penetration is smaller and bandwidth restricted. The lightweight version of Yamgo TV is addressing a gap in the market that has been left by Youtube’s turning off RTSP-streaming and other services heavily focusing on the app market.

Essentially, Yamgo has just made it easier to enjoy TV on the go, on any device, anywhere, and extended its content offering. If the user wishes to share a show with their friends or family, the new website allows them to share channels and shows with others across Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

The new website can be accessed for free on desktop and mobile via www.yamgo.com. The lightweight version is available on yamgo.mobi
