A new video product in the US called VidCall has recently launched which is basically a TV and audio platform. Once you’ve set up an account you can load multiple videos and audio files to your channel. Browsers can view this content through the VidCall website or they can download an iPhone or Android application to view via their mobile phone.
All sounds very similar to YouTube right? It is, except you can purchase a VidCall number (USD29 per annum) that you advertise and provide to your audience. With this number your audience can dial it into either of the phone applications and your content will appear. There’s no cost to your audience because the number is not dialed, its simply used as a search tool to pull your content through the internet.
It’s always great to see innovation, especially in the online video segment as this is one of the most popular and fastest growing. However, VidCall are basically competing with Youtube and trying to charge a fee for this. Can they successfully do this? Perhaps, but you need to remember that users can market their YouTube channel @DoubleBayProperty for free.
Also, there should be a mobile phone website so any phone browser with internet access can view content eg m.youtube.com not just those with an iPhone or Android phone.
