Default Spb TV: Mobile TV On the Go

"Today at CTIA Wireless, Spb Software - a leading maker of mobile applications, announces the release of Spb TV - a practical mobile TV player with patent-pending on-screen controls and fast channel switching technology, use of intelligent stream correction, picture-in-picture mode, and an integrated TV guide with export of show reminders into Outlook. Spb TV is a subscription-free and international live mobile TV solution that is geared up to utilize the new generation of faster wireless networks. The now standalone mobile TV solution for Windows Phones, Spb TV was first introduced to the market in September 2008 as the flagship feature of Spb Online. Since then, it has hosted millions of mobile TV sessions. Spb TV is unique in its approach to the mobile TV experience, offering the unexpectedly natural simplicity of watching live TV on a phone. Spb TV goes a long way to support the genuine TV watching behavior on a handset: quick TV guide check-up and channel hopping, on-screen controls for volume and backlight, neat integration of TV functionality with other mobile features (such as messages, calls, and battery life monitoring)."

Spb Software has packaged the TV feature of Spb Online into its own product, Spb TV. The application includes a unique TV browser, an integrated TV guide, PiP mode, support for reminders, and a touch-friendly interface. There's a free, trial version (Windows Mobile Classic/Professional, Windows Mobile Standard) at our affiliate software store. The full version will set you back $14.95.

I decided to buy the full version just one day into my trial. SPB TV is a solid V.1 release with a highly impressive interface. The current release offers a smattering of channels in major European languages as well as Arabic, with channel expansion built into the platform for down-the-road development.
