Sprint Screens Full Length Movies
Sep 5, 2006, 4:59 PM by (staff)
Sprint today launched Sprint Movies, a service that allows users to view full length movies on their Power Vision handsets. Users will pay between $4 and $6 per title, which allows them to either watch the whole movie or just chapters for anywhere from one day to one week depending on the title. Viewing movies is similar to a DVD experience, with the ability to pause, resume, or skip forward and back by chapters. Sprint Movies is launching with 45 titles from Babe to Animal House to The Village. All movies are edited to meet TV-14 standards. Sprint continues to offer another service, mSpot Movies, which allows users to stream unlimited video of movies, TV and concerts for $7 per month.

Have we lost it?!
I just think that cell phone are starting to get a little out of hand.
Sprint is so far ahead
Yup, far ahead up their a$$es.
All movies are edited to TV-14 standards?
And, hey, sex ain't bad, either.
this is actually kinda cool
I am currently at my radioshack watching billy madison on an LG Fusic side by side with Meet The Parents on a samsung 920.
The quality isnt bad at all. Its a cell phone, its obviously not gonna be perfect. But you dont have to squint your eyes or anything stupid like you are all imagining. Im like 10 minutes in on both movies and neither have paused yet to continue buffering..I dont imagine the buffering interupptions will be to much to handle.
The quality maybe just a small step above sprinttv. There are occasional distorted pictures but it fixes itself pretty quickly.
I wouldnt advise throwing down 5 bucks a movie on a regular basis but ...
and billy still said: "that boys got a *(@&% you got a pet..........you get your @$$ out there and you find that #@$% dog!"
I'm reserving judgement
And they are being edited, and they cost the same as a regular DVD rental from Blockbuster.
Thank, I'll pass for now. I'd rather just rip my own DVDs and then upload to my TF card.
I love my Moto A1200 *333
Who wants to watch movies on their phone? I suspect it will be one of two categories of people:
1. People who do it for the novelty: "DUDE! CheckitoutIcantotallywatchthismovie - ON MY PHONE!"...
I cant find it in the channel listing?
Cop:"How did you get that scar, eating pineapple?"
Tony:"You think I can get this scar by eating pineapple?" Way to ruin the classics.
Too bad my a900's battery life wouldn't last though a whole movie...
