Univision Launches “UVideos” Online On-Demand Video Network with Heavy Social Features

Univision Launches “UVideos” Online On-Demand Video Network with Heavy Social Features

The Social TV experience for Univision viewers is getting better with the launch of UVideos, an on-demand online video network that launches Monday.

The site is made for both Spanish and English-speaking viewers and videos appear with subtitles so English speakers can watch sports and telenovelas from Univision and from cable channels Galavision and Telefutura, Broadcasting and Cable reports.

Why launch a video network? Lost Remote asked Kevin Conroy during last May’s upfronts. This is what he said:

“At Univision we recognize our audience is younger, over-indexes on social and mobile and loves our content,” said Kevin Conroy, president of Univision Interactive Media and Enterprise Development . “Our mission is connect viewers to the best Hispanic Digital Network anytime, anywhere, and across any device – and that’s UVideos. Content consumption has unequivocally changed, people want to consume from any given screen or device, and we are committed to delivering quality content – Hispanic America’s favorite content, regardless of platform.”

Uvideos strengthens the SocialTV experience by allowing users to comment on shows in real time or if you are watching on-demand, will synch the comments to when the show originally aired. Users can also login with Facebook or Twitter and comments will appear in those channels and link back to the UVideo network.

“‘We’re calling it spoiler free TV,’ Scott Levine, VP of video products for Univision told Broadcasting & Cable.

B&C also reports that the site will supports TV Everywhere. Users who sign in and authenticate that they are a subscriber to a multi-channel distributor can get additional content. Dish Network is signed on at launch, with Cablevision Systems, AT&T, Verizon and Xbox on board, according to Univision. You can expect apps for iPhone, iPad and Android by the end of the month with an Xbox app in late November.

With about 1,500 hours of long form programming available and about 100 short form clips a day, users should have plenty to choose from.
