On Monday, Yahoo launched a video-viewing iOS app, Yahoo Screen.  It is the first major app launch from the company’s 10-month-old mobile engineering office in New York City.

The app is a portal to content from Yahoo’s video partners, which include ABC News, and Martha Stewart, and to its growing portfolio of original content. In conjunction with the app launch, Yahoo is releasing episodes from eight new comedy series, featuring the likes of Jack Black, John Stamos, Ed Helms and Cheryl Hines.

They will be joined by a variety of licensed content, including 5,000 clips from the last 38 years of SNL, which Yahoo secured streaming rights for in late April.

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

You can download the free app right here.
