Viewster Android app to launch first across Europe with Motorola

Fast growing VoD movie service Viewster will launch its innovative Android app for the first time, across 30 European markets, through a new partnership with Motorola set to go live during April 2011.

Motorola will carry the Viewster app on the Motorola ATRIX smartphone as well as on the new Motorola XOOM tablet. The app will be localized for regional markets, with 5 language versions available at launch. Viewster will enjoy exclusivity as Motorola’s sole on-demand movie service partner outside of the US.

“Our deal with Motorola is exciting for two reasons,” explained Elizabeth Cowley, SVP Strategic Partnerships of Viewster parent company Diva AG. “Firstly it allows us to bring to market our outstanding Android app with a partner whose market footprint is capable of introducing it at a stroke across Europe. Secondly, having established strategic relationships with all of the key manufacturers of connected TVs and hardware, a deal with Motorola is the perfect way to spearhead the development of our partner portfolio in mobiles and tablets.”

Offline VoD viewing with Viewster Android app.

Motorola mobile device owners will find their on-the-move device experience heightened by Viewster.

The Viewster app enables offline viewing of movies, allowing them to be enjoyed while travelling by air or on trains, including those on underground metro systems. From the perspective of rights owners, the Viewster platform provides comprehensive copy protection for content consumed in this way.

Viewster app brings Motorola device owners outstanding viewing choices.

Viewster offers classic and current Hollywood movies and award-winning independent films and TV series. Action, comedy, thriller and other popular genre new release movies are added on a continuous basis, with some 20 percent of the catalogue being refreshed each year.
