Vidgo has been a long time coming

Vidgo first announced its intention to launch a prepaid streaming service back at CES 2016. Since then, the service has slowly evolved into being. At first, Vidgo offered international packages before requesting beta testers for the U.S. version of the service.

Now, rather quietly, the service has launched in the U.S.

The quietness of the launch is likely indicative of this still being a service in the early stages of deployment. Therefore, although pricing and the channel lineup are announced, they might be subject to change over the coming weeks and months. For example, the advertised number of channels is currently higher than the actual number of channels on offer.

The latest low-cost option

Priced at just $14.99 per month, Vidgo becomes the latest live TV streaming service to arrive boasting an ultra-low monthly price.

For the $14.99 per month, users gain access to 49 channels, including A&E, BET, Discovery, ID, and more.

At this price, Vidgo is directly up against the likes of AT&T's WatchTV and Philo. WatchTV also costs $15 per month but provides access to 41 channels. In contrast, Philo ups the price to $20 per month but also the channel lineup to 58.

Besides the new National English Package, Vidgo also offers packages aimed at Spanish-speaking viewers. There's the Latino Streaming Plan which offers 20 channels for $14.99 per month. While those looking for more content can go with the Latino Mas Streaming Plan, priced at $24.99 per month.

Getting started with Vidgo

The whole point of Vidgo is a no-problem service therefore getting started is fairly easy.

As this is a service that's been a long time in development, the app support at launch is wide. Vidgo can be downloaded on Android smartphones and tablets, as well as on Android TV. Vidgo is also available on iOS devices, Amazon Fire TV and watchable via the Chrome and Firefox browsers.
