Where does one go after Rdio? Why, Vdio, of course. GigaOm
today got some answers about Skype
co-founder Janus Friis's upcoming service. First and most foremost, it's pronounced "Vee-dee-o." The service is in closed beta at the moment, and will be first made available in the UK. The service will let users watch TV shows and movies -- beyond that, we don't know much, though the company assures us all that it "think[s] people will love using Vdio." Fair enough. At present, the service's homepage is cycling through shots of films like A Clockwork Orange
and TV shows like Justified
and Breaking Bad
. Not too shabby.
