MobiTV Coming to the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Incredible This Summer

When it comes to watching video on Android handsets, there aren’t too many different options. However, this might all change come Summer.  Why might you ask?  Well, coming in June, MobiTV will debut its video streaming service on Android. According to a report at Androinica, MobiTV will launch this Summer on both the Motorola Droid and Droid Incredible (are you jealous Nexus One owners?).   There is no word yet on whether or not older phones will be supported, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

MobiTV, the company that also powers Sprint TV,  allows users to watch a vast array of content.  Having previously had it on my iPhone, I can tell you first hand that you can watch on-demand video, live channels like ABC News or FOX News, as well as music video streaming channels.   The list is very impressive.

Something of importance to note though is that if Flash is as good as we are hearing, a service like this will be rendered obsolete.  Who would pay for TV on a handset when they could just watch it using Flash for free?  I know I wouldn’t.

Is anyone excited about this? Let us know!

      As of now you can download the Skyfire browser from the market and watch flash videos. Hulu doesn’t work, but many other sites work like fox.com, nbc.com. It works really well.

    Are you jealous Droid and Droid Incredible owners when Froyo is released on the Nexus One and your stuck with an out-dated Sense?

      Not really…I am sure that there will be a rooted version of Froyo available to us quite quickly thanks to our dedicated Devs.. ;)

    Dammit Verizon! First they hog Skype and now they hog this. This business model sure works for them but it's a pain to the other users.
