    TV for 9700

    I tried the MobiTV...only get 5 mins free... but it was very pixeliated (sp?) and the sound was lagging. Is there another good streaming TV app? I get bored at work so I thought it would be nice to have...plus sometimes we need a "toy" for our daughter...lol. I like the concept of MobiTV but $10 a month for poor viewing is just wrong. Hubby said it might be better over WiFi but no WiFi at work. So it would need to be able to work over EDGE....no 3G here either.

    If there is none, I guess I could find a way to put movies on my memory card.

    Thanks! I got it installed and download 2 shows to my SD so I can watch at work. Since I have no wifi or 3G at work, I did them at home to watch later. Thanks again. Looks good so far.

    I have only watched a few seconds of the ones I downloaded via WiFi at home and the quality was good. Some pixelation (sp?) but nothing like MobiTV. I plan to check it out over lunch. I will report back to you.

    Ok, I watched about 5 mins of "Bones". Amazing!!! The quality is perfect, very little pixelation (sp?)...just stretched out but nothing really noticable that you can't enjoy the show. There is no lag in the sound and picture. This is 100 times better than MobiTV. And I watched 5 mins of MobiTV so I was not partial...lol. I do like that you can go online via your PC to add shows to your quenue then download when you are able via your phone (it automatically updates your quene on your phone). It only downloads one show at a time but once one is done, it starts on the next one in your quene. Some shows do have a time limit on how long they are available but it tells you in the detail of the show.

    I do suggest downloading via WiFi because EDGE is too slow...can't comment on 3G since none around me. You can watch via WiFi or download to watch later. It gives you the option when you select the show or you can change it in your settings.

    Oh I haven't watched via WiFi so I can't tell if there is lag or anything. I have just downloaded to my SD via WiFi....I will try to watch via WiFi when I get home.

    Ok, just watched the whole show of "Bones." 42 mins...used about 25% of my battery.

    Picture - great
    Sound - great

    I even got a call during the show and it paused and when I hung up, all I had to do was hit play again.

    It did freeze up twice...once about 11 mins into it and one more time towards the end. I just hit pause then play again and it resumed. Not sure if it was the download or the phone. Overall...Wonderful app!

    I forgot to mention that the shows list is kinda short but still very popular shows...from Bones, NCIS, Office, Family Guy, National Geographic specials.

    I hope you enjoy it!
