Dreams, a Brooklyn-based startup, has launched a TV network/app tailored for smartphones that features a swipe-based interface along with content that has been converted or developed natively to fit the vertical viewing format.
"Everyone holds their phones vertically. It's like holding a glass of water. It’s just so much more comfortable,” Tom Bender, co-founder of Dreams Media, said, offering a view that clearly runs counter to that of Verizon’s Go90 service.
The idea is to offer a free, ad-supported service that starts to feed video once the app is open, without logins or any added friction, and to deliver an experience that’s as simple as turning on a traditional TV.
