Sprint Confirms VUE Test Uses MediaFLO
Oct 10, 2006, 12:05 PM by (staff)
Sprint has confirmed that it is testing Qualcomm's MediaFLO mobile broadcast technology. The carrier was recently discovered to be trialing the service called VUE, with a Samsung TV phone modified for use in the US. The service is not a user-selected download or stream like Sprint TV. Instead it is a set of digital TV channels transmitted over a frequency separate from Sprint's cellular spectrum which a user can tune into. If trials are successful, Sprint is likely to join Verizon as a FLO launch partner. Verizon's MediaFLO trials have not been discussed or leaked, however the carrier was announced as Qualcomm's first partner for the service.
Can anybody tap into this?
