Sprint today announced that the carrier will launch its own video programming. Power View will feature sports and entertainment programming created specifically for the small screen by Sprint. In addition to programming produced in a studio, Sprint will have 15 mobile camera crews to cover live events. The initial lineup of studio-produced shows is a sports heavy mix. More programs and live content will be added in coming weeks. All Power View shows are available free of charge either on Sprint TV or via a downloadable application. Amp'd also offers shows produced for the small screen as well as ones filmed by mobile camera crews.

They Lack Strategy & Have Too Much Money

It is a mistake for a carrier to focus on making creative decisions for personalization content, and a _joke_ for a carrier to invest resources in becoming a media production company. Why?

- Carriers are data companies and need to focus on their core competency.
- Companies that fail to focus on their core competency become spread too thinly and make bad decisions on not only their core competency, but the areas in which they choose to expand outside of their core.

You all just DON'T get it!

This is a FREE service people!!!

Sprint invested a lot of money in their data network. What the hell is wrong with providing some people a little extra value for just having a regular Vision plan? What re you going to do next? Complain that data speeds are getting faster than anyone else?

Go whine your way over to Verizon...
The point is that Sprint, if they decide to put more content on their phones, should pay someone who can do a half-decent job at it, rather than trying to create a media division out of nowhere. This is like McDonald's creating TV crews to record tel...

STICK TO PHONE SERVICE...FORGET VIDEOS ON PHONES

Nobody cares to watch video on a tiny camera. Mobile plans are expensive enough as is and people aren't going to spend even more on that type of thing. Mobile phone companies need to wise up.
It's FREE, moron! Do you see the competition (Verizon) offering this? It's great way to offer more value to your regular customers. God forbid!
