Sprint Offers Live TV on Mobile Handsets
Posted on 27-Sep-2005 18:44. | Tags Filed under: News.

Sprint has launched Sprint TV Live, a service offering Sprint PCS Vision subscribers channels of continuous broadcast TV content from a variety of popular US-based television stations such as FOX Sports, ABC News Now, The Learning Channel (TLC) and Discovery. Sprint TV Live is available in the US and streams at up to 15 frames per second.

Sprint TV Live can be accessed through the Sprint Media Player on all Sprint multimedia-capable handsets for US$9.99 a month. The service is on Channel 9 and will appear under the category heading Sprint TV once purchased. The Sprint Media Player can be accessed on the handset through the main menu.

Sprint TV Live channels are continuously streamed to the phone on the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network, providing high-quality viewing experience and eliminating the need to download and store video files on the phone.

At launch, Sprint TV Live will offer 19 channels, including: ABC, FOX Sports, FOX News Channel Live, NFL Network, Discovery, Discovery Kids, Discovery En Espanol, Comedy Time, TLC, The Weather Channel, CNET, CMC, CMC Beat and CSPAN, plus many more.

In the past year, Sprint has released eight multimedia-capable handsets from Sanyo, Samsung and LG. Sprint also has enhanced channel selection, now offering over 31 channels of continuous and on-demand audio and video content.

Sprint TV and Sprint TV Live are both powered by MobiTV.
