Sprint is set to unveil a new service that will let subscribers watch full length movies on their phones. Like DVDs, the movies are divided into short sections, allowing users to jump to where they left off when last they had a chance to watch. The service will launch with a few classic movies, but Sprint claims it will add seven movies every week as well as TV shows, concerts and comedy acts. The service will be available to EV-DO Power Vision customers for an additional $6.95 per month.

Apparently we don't need our eyes...

I mean, watching these flicks on screens the size of a few postage stamps? My eyes are already bad enough.
And one of the debut movies is Short Circuit, to boot, drama.

Sprint hates us.

Power Vision not so powerful

how long will it take before sprint starts puting restrictions on this service. Downloading a movie is a subtantial amount of data and ev-do (AKA: powervision) is pretty restricted in throughput.

We've already seen the "power" of ev-do via the verizon experience. Verizon are now turning people off who use ev-do too much, which does not seem too difficult with all the conditions verizon puts on it.
That's because Verizon and Sprint suck. Just because you're first to market with something, doesn't mean you're the best. Just look at the xbox 360...
I have downloaded over 2 gigs of data on my Sprint phone with Power Vision and have not been notified about anything. I doubt they will limit anyone because Power Vision allows for teathering. This is a Major difference between Verizon and Sprint. Ve...
You guys are all full of it. Sprint WANTS people to use the damn service, moron. Why would you claim all of this on Sprint just because VZW does this? VZW doesn't have as much riding on data as does Sprint. VZW has lots of blindly loyal customers that...
I can't believe you are assuming that because VZW's EV-DO blows that Sprints would as well. How many times have they released their PTT now....3? They hope to release their TV next year as Sprint allows you to watch movies and TV shows like the new ...

Good idea in my view

i think this is a good idea by sprint to provide more content on its ev-do system becuase it will increase data arpu. i think sprint is the king when it comes to data as well as arpu. i think this will strenghten their marketplace in the data world. perhaps it will entice more people to sign onto its service. i think it will. but, i think we will more content when REV A comes around as well as 4g data. this is a good start by sprint and i think we should have other companies follow. the cable deal with sprint was huge..

time will tell. 🙂

welcome to the wonderful world of content on high speed data!!

This awsome!!!

I currently watch movies on my Motorola V710, RAZR V3C and Nokia 6255i. Now being able to download or stream these movies will save me alot of time and head ache converting them to the appropriate file. I think I might have to switch my Nextel account over to Sprint now...
