Sprint Revamps Streaming Music and TV
Mar 14, 2007, 1:37 PM by (staff)
Sprint has begun telling subscribers it will replace the Sirius Hits streaming music service with 10 genre-based channels. However the carrier will boost up its free Sprint TV offerings with content from CNN, Weather Channel, E! and Fox Sports. Both of these moves bring Sprint more in line with its cable partners, which offer these channels in basic service packages and tend to shy away from satellite radio. The push to boost up its cellular TV offering could also be a sign that Sprint will not partner with any mobile TV services, and not just MediaFLO.
