FLO TV and mophie have reportedly entered into a partnership to create a series of products that will help bring live mobile TV to the iPhone (News - Alert) and iPod Touch platforms.
The new products that are to be developed through the partnership are supposed to bring the FLO TV mobile TV service to the mophie “ Juice Pack,” helping customers to view their favorite live entertainment, sports and news from the world’s top entertainment brands on their iPhone and iPod touch.
The mophie Juice Pack is designed to extend the time users can Rock, Talk, Surf and Send with their iPhone and iPod Touch. The pack also helps in doubling the battery power of these devices.
Bill Stone, president of FLO TV, said the company is uniting its vision of advancing mobile TV across a range of devices and platforms with mophie’s unrivaled expertise in designing intelligent cases for Apple (News - Alert) users. Together, the mophie-FLO TV solution will be a true live mobile TV product available to iPhone and iPod touch users, Stone said.
According to Mophie, the Juice Pack delivers superior rechargeable external battery life for Apple users.
New products will integrate mophie’s intelligent case design with a built-in FLO TV receiver that allows iPhone and iPod touch users the ability to watch live television at the flip of a switch. FLO TV will be transmitting the live mobile programming channels in real time which means there is no downloading, sideloading or buffering.
FLO TV recently released its handheld FLO TV Personal TV and FLO TV expanded its service nationwide. Nathesh is a contributing editor for TMCnet. To read more of Nathesh's articles, please visit his columnist page.
