I have excellent network data service coverage, but the TV content jumps quite a bit. I am hopeful that a future upgrade will work better.
Currently, I am a 'Verizon' subscriber. Mobi-TV is a great concept---lots of 'varied interest' channels.I suggest you do your homework prior to purchasing.-Mobi-TV has a 'free' sample download that includes 1-2 channels, try this 1st before deciding whether to be a subscriber.-Mobi-TV is not available for all phones/smartphones, check for availability 1st. Don't make any assumptions about availabilty on a version of phone. Example: Mobi-TV is available for the original Motorola Q, but not available for the Motorola QH nor the Motorola Q9M 'currently'. -Last, from my experience, Mobi-TV does not have a great quality sound unless your phone/smartphone is equipped with 'Stereo Speakers'.I've found Mobi-TV's customer service to be one of the best I've encountered.
Just be sure to check with your current provider to see exactly what channels you will be getting. I purchased the product thinking I was getting certain channels that I did not end up getting. This is nobodys fault but mine. I did not read in detail before I jumped in. The service was great, I watch about three or four channels max out of what I got, and they are all crystal clear with great reception. No problems anywhere, except with the channel lineup for Alltel. I want other channels!!
We got this last month but forgot to cancel so we will cancel next month before renewal. It seems to lag a lot, and the screen pauses or freezes. I am on Alltel network. We have only used it a few times and still dont care for it. I wouldnt recommend it, seems to be a waste of money.
I downloaded the MobiTV application for use with my Alltel MOTO Q, which uses the EVDO broadband-quality speed standard, and I really wanted to like this application, especially since I don't have cable TV at home. Unfortunately, I found that while it was a fun little toy to play with for a while, MobiTV was still too slow to be usable. It took quite a while to refresh the screen upon changing the station or going between full and regular screen views. In addition, the quality wasn't that great. The images looked very pixellated and were often jagged and hard to make out, even on the full-screen mode. The station choices were pretty good--with options like NBC, Oxygen, Bravo, Sci Fi, Discovery, TLC, ESPN and several music choices--but it wasn't worth the monthly investment for me.
Compared to other programs i've purchased, this is one of the best tv applications on the market for the Q phone. Though i'm sure some of the programs were recorded earlier, several air just minutes after the regular tv version such as fox news, nbc and abc news. If you were to buy a hand held tv it would cost close to a hundred dollars and not give you the channels that this does!
Good app for looking at mobile TV, much cheaper than what Verizon is charging for only 8 channels that pnly work for two phones. Some of the channels are out there (the Linkin Park channel?) but the discovery channel is excellent. The picture can be a little choppy at times but overall it's nice and I hope more channels are added shortly.
AWESOME... MobiTV has plenty channels, several different music channels... Discovery Channel is awesome!!! I am with Alltel and it works good, the picture is clear, some pixeled depending on what your watching but for the most part well worth it in my opinion... AWESOME for Alltel EVDO at least!!
This software will not work on a Sprint Motorola Q and Handango should state this clearly on the software's product page. Do not buy this until MobiTV releases the Sprint version. I got suckered for 10 bucks, learn from my mistake.
This program does NOT work on the Sprint version of the Moto Q yet, per MobiTV. They stated they are working on a version that does.
