The service will launch with a few classic movies, but Sprint claims it will add seven movies every week as well as TV shows, concerts and comedy acts. The service will be available to EV-DO Power Vision customers for an additional $6.95 per month.

Power Vision not so powerful
We've already seen the "power" of ev-do via the verizon experience. Verizon are now turning people off who use ev-do too much, which does not seem too difficult with all the conditions verizon puts on it.
Good idea in my view
time will tell.
welcome to the wonderful world of content on high speed data!!
