announces the availability of its new YouTube service on Roku player products. This new and additional capability enables TV viewers using Roku and MobileTribe to extend their experience of blended social networking by including the ability to interact with YouTube, as well as a wide selection of other leading community sites including Facebook, MySpace, Orkut, Google, and Yahoo.
MobileTribe is an intuitive and easy to use TV portal application which enables viewers to browse and access different consumer networking applications with nothing more than a TV remote control. Not only can viewers enjoy social networking on their big screens, they can also share photos from Flickr and Picasa, interact with personal videos as well as videos on YouTube, have access to their email accounts and address books on Gmail, Yahoo, and other providers. Now you can surf TV networks as well as your favorite social networks, all from the comfort of your couch. No longer is searching for telephone numbers of your contacts limited to your PC or cell phone – you can look them up on your TV.
Mobile Tribe’s easy to use application takes advantage of its cloud based Platform as a Service to provide new converged services functionality from the big screen to the small. By providing new integrated services for social activities, MobileTribe effectively co-ordinates viewers, social sites, content providers, TV networks, and viewer remote control devices, creating a richer and more engaging experience for viewers, than that offered by stand alone services created and controlled in siloed networks.
