Back on January 29, Fandango (the NBCUniversal-owned online movie ticket service) acquired M-GO from DreamWorks and Technicolor. M-GO is a popular video-on-demand streaming service (with 4K content) that is offered on a variety of smart TV and standalone streaming media platforms, including a prominent placement on the Roku home page. Fandango announced this week that it is changing the name of M-GO to FandangoNOW, effectively this month. M-GO users received the following announcement via email:
Fandango, the nation's #1 moviegoer destination for showtimes, tickets, trailers and reviews, has acquired M-GO. We are changing our name from M-GO to FandangoNOW, so please don't be surprised when you start to see FandangoNOW appear on your applications and website.
If you prefer to opt out of these changes, click here and follow the instructions on the resulting page. If you opt out, we will remove your information from our database, including movies you have purchased.
We hope you will stay with us, and if you do, we assure you the new FandangoNOW will continue to deliver an amazing experience; and we promise that the future will bring new features, offerings, and other cool benefits.
