updated Verizon today announced they will use Qualcomm's MediaFLO technology to bring TV to their EV-DO networks. FLO (forward link only) is a streaming protocol that allows a carrier to broadcast to many subscribers simultaneously by letting the subscriber grab a stream that is already in progress and any user can instantly start viewing. Verizon will launch the service using a 700 MHz network owned by Qualcomm, the final specs and standards of which were only recently ratified. They will begin by launching FLO broadcasts in about half of their EV-DO markets and then slowly expand the network to cover all EV-DO areas. The initial launches should begin sometime next year.

Let's not forget
I really wanted to check my daily colbert report from my phone.
Still not as good as sprint's EVDO network
All else bein' equal, lower freqs = better reception indoors. 🙂
MediaFLOW does not use EVDO technology, it is a different frequency.
This is actually great news for EVDO users, since it will remove Vcast, which does use EVDO, off the EVDO network and that will free up TONS of bandwidth for users that need it.
I wonder if you can use this on any EVDO phone, or would you have to buy one that is capable when it comes out?
Nice! Wonder what shows they're gonna have..
I jus' hope it has some good shows, including cable ones (which're generally better). My Top 5 would be:
Monday Night Football
Hope it's got good content.. if so it'll be sweeeet.
if i am wrong please correct me!
