Action Engine Previews Live TV on Smartphone and Pocket PC Phone Edition
Action Engine Corporation have announced plans to integrate live streaming television into its Brand-n-Go turnkey mobile applications pack.

Brand-n-Go currently gives wireless subscribers access to mobile content from providers, such as Amazon.com, eBay, FOX Sports, and the Microsoft MapPoint Team. Working in collaboration with SmartVideo, Action Engine will add a live broadcast TV application to the Brand-n-Go applications pack, giving users the ability to watch streaming television programs directly from their mobile phone. SmartVideo recently announced content distribution deals with national programmers, such as MSNBC and CNBC, ABC News and ABC News Now, The Weather Channel and DIC Entertainment.

"Action Engine's unique browserless client/server platform gives mobile users faster, easier and more secure access to SmartVideo's streaming televised content," said Richard E. Bennett, Jr., president and CEO of SmartVideo. "The public is clearly hungry for television on the go, and Action Engine is the right company to help make that a positive experience."

According to the company, the complete Action Engine solution lets subscribers use interconnected Brand-n-Go applications to watch television programs, shop on Amazon.com, bid on eBay items, read news stories, check weather, stocks, and sports scores, get driving directions, find restaurants and movie times 20x faster, while using 80% fewer keystrokes than browser-based alternatives.
