Do you remember Flipboard, the news service that takes stories online and puts them in a magazine-like interface? Well, it looks like the company is full pivot-to-video train while rolling out the Flipboard TV service to essentially all mobile devices.
If you have not heard of Flipboard TV before right now, you are not alone. The service has been available exclusively on Samsung devices for some time, so it was not exactly comprehensive. That̵
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 similarly to the app’s current format – videos are displayed throughout the app or under a separate Flipboard TV tab. You can add videos to current collections, or “Magazines” as they are called on the service, as well as sort by topic.
The service also introduces new TV publishers with the wide rollout, including Complex Networks, Vice Media and content from local TV stations (according to Engadget).
Flipboard TV remains ad-based and free for all users, saved for Galaxy owners, who can choose to get rid of ads for $ 3 a month.
