Yahoo today announced a new Yahoo Screen app, designed to function as a hub for all of Yahoo’s media content. In the app, which features gesture-based controls that turn a finger into a remote control, users can browse through trending show clips or search for episodes.
When watching a show, swiping left or right will skip between episodes and a swipe up or down changes the channel. To kick things off, Yahoo has inked a deal with Viacom to offer clips from Comedy Central shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, along with content from Saturday Night Live. Full shows, like Ghost Ghirls and Losing It With John Stamos are also available.
Download, kick back, and instantly watch the best videos from Yahoo Screen.
