Yamgo TV launches Facebook app

Mobile TV specialist Yamgo TV has launched a Facebook social TV app which it says has already signed up over 9,000 users.

According to Yamgo, the app has brought over 100 licensed linear TV channels to the social network, allowing users to watch TV services through Facebook. Content partners include Sony SAB, France 24 and Zee TV.

The app allows users to share their viewing activity with friends via the Facebook Open Graph.

Ian Mullins, the founder and CEO of Yamgo said, “Watching TV has become a huge social experience, we’re not just watching along with the people in our living rooms anymore, we’re watching with the whole world. In terms of social TV, Twitter has received a lot of attention regarding television lately for their research with Nielsen and their purchase of Bluefin Labs but Facebook also has a lot to offer as an entertainment platform – the success of current games and applications on the platform are a great example of the potential growth possibilities that the social network offers.”
Yamgo has built a range of smartphone apps and desktop and mobile websites.
