Do you remember Flipboard, the news aggregator service that takes stories to the web and puts them in a newspaper-like interface? Well, it looks like the company is completely on pivot-to-video train when rolling out its Flipboard TV service to virtually any mobile device.
If you have not heard of Flipboard TV right now, you are not alone. The service has been available exclusively on Samsung devices for some time, so it was not exactly extensive. That̵7;s changing now, as Flipboard expands TV availability.
The feature is baked into the current Flipboard app, so you do not need a separate app to check it out. In any case, it works quite similar to the app’s current format, in any case – videos appear in the app or under a separate flip TV tab. You can add videos to current collections or “Magazines” as they are called for the service, as well as sort by topic.
The service also introduces new TV publishers with the broad launch, including complex networks, Vice Media and content from local TV stations (according to Engadget).
Flipboard TV remains ad-based and free for all users, save for Galaxy owners, who can choose to get rid of ads for $ 3 a month.
