Despite small screen sizes, people are watching movies and TV shows increasingly on their mobile devices. Apps and hardware can give users access to digital channels while on the move, even HD content, with the ability to pause, rewind, fast forward, and record live TV a like a DVR in your hand....
Using the SlingPlayer Mobile, you can watch any TV show when you are on the go and on any device or platform; this solution basically "slings" forth your viewable content from your home setup (cable/dish) to your mobile device. You can enjoy live or recorded TV over WiFi or even 3G connection (though WiFi is recommended unless you want to endure some loading times/pausing as it buffers). You can flip thru channels while you are waiting at the airport or even keep your kids from getting bored on that long trip.
BitBop is a subscription service that let you watch TV shows from your favorite network. Right now they're offering a free trial offer permitting users to stream or download up to 3 shows over your 7 to see if this service is right for you. With the regular $9.99 per month feee, users have unlimited access to a decent sized line up of shows; it's very similar to Netflix streaming or cable television stripped of the channel designation, optimized for mobile devices. After you watch some shows, Bitbop even learns more about you and the service becomes more personalized and tailored to your own taste.
Packet Video Mobile
This little device will take your digital TV signal and converts it into a format that's usable on a phone. It will come in versions for each of the major mobile broadcast standards such as Tdtv, DVB-H, MediaFLO and WiMAX. The device looks like it will only be compatible with some of the higher-end phones, as they listed Nokia N-series, Apple iPhone and HTC Smartphones as some of the compatible products.
