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.
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.
