The Vevo, known site for music videos that previously was only available to users in six countries, opened the door to Brazilians. On Tuesday (14), the site was launched in Portuguese and gives access to over 50,000 videos “premium” and live shows. The clips can also be watched in applications available for major platforms.
In post on the official blog, the international senior vice president of Vevo, Nic Jones, has been in Brazil and highlighted the presence of music in the lives of Brazilians. “At all times I was in Brazil, I was struck by the fact that there is always music playing, whether in Ipanema beaches, the corners of São Paulo or Carnival in Salvador. It is at the heart of culture, soul and rhythm of people. ”
Vevo was available in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Brazilians could only watch the videos around the canals of artists on YouTube. Now, just visit the official website, do a search and watch clips from your favorite artists in a more practical way. The service includes videos of Brazilian artists and bands including Ivete Sangalo, Paula Fernandes and Chiclete com Banana.
Access to the site is free and does not require registration, but it works like Hulu free: It is often necessary to view some advertising of Vevo partners before the video starts Samsung, Pepsi, Citroen and Axe are sponsoring the site, logo, ads these companies will be very frequent there. Free registration provides music recommendations, synchronization with iTunes, among other features.
Applications were translated into Portuguese and are available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone (also not in the Brazilian Marketplace) and even BlackBerry PlayBook. Vevo is also compatible with the Xbox 360 and Boxee. More information can be found here.
