Today mSpot launched a new service that will stream full-length feature movies to cell phones. mPost has agreements in place with Paramount, Universal and Weinstein Co. studios, offering 300 movies in its catalog at launch. mSpot plans to have thousands of films available by the end of the year. mSpot said the service will work on 30 different handsets, including the Apple iPhone, and Blackberry and Android devices. mSpot said it has agreements with four U.S. network operators, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, which have agreed to permit the service to use their networks. Movies are streamed to handsets on-demand and can be stopped and started as needed. Movies cost $5 and can be paid for via credit card. mSpot recommends users have unlimited data plans.

ive had mspot for a long time

Not to sound like a Sprint fan boy. but ive had mspot for a couple months now on Sprint tv. Paying like 6bucks a month. Its not anything to be hype about in my opinion. The movie selection sucks, i think. Hopefully they fix this and it will be a great addition to my phone. It runs without freezing on the evdo rev a id like to add.
My thing is that I have no real interest in streaming movies. I'd rather just rip them from DVD and put them on my iPod. If I had a phone that played movies I'd do the same thing and keep them on the flash memory.
Like "wow" a long time for you is "two months!" That's two billing cycles, and $12 later. it also sounds like you dont use the service much either..

3G data speeds aren't good enough for this.

I've been using my N95 to watch videos on my laptop recently and 3G really sucks for watching video!

Recently I have seriously been considering getting Verizon 4G for web browsing if they launch Las Vegas before the end of next year.
Perhaps the experience streaming to the mobile will be different than tethering the handset as a modem and watching streaming video on your laptop?
Or you could have WiMAX now Jay. It was launched in Vegas last month. I heard it's awesome.
The initial rollout of 4G is probably going to be for laptop cards, not phones.
