Vodafone Portugal Launches Mobile TV App

Back in January, before iPhone 3.0 made MMS an impending feature for all (carrier depending!), Jose sent us word that Vodafone Portugal had launched their own iMMS app. Well, now Jose is back and so is Vodafone Portugal.. with Mobile TV:

an application to watch TV from the iPhone. The download is free but after that you have to pay a subscription. One day is 0,89€, one week is 1,97€ (first week free), one month is 7,44€ (first month free).

So is this another case of a carrier leading where Apple will one day soon follow? They have announced new live streaming capabilities in 3.0...

  • Am I missing something here? I've had Orb forever, and it can emulate the streaming video thing. Sure, the app was $10 bucks, but I could watch any video on my pc. I DVR live tv.
    I guess they're apple and oranges. Both fruity, but different tastes.
  • Picture quality is bad. And it wont allow you to use it with wifi... something that for a carrier that doesnt have and unlimited data plan, can be a problem..
  • Portugal must be lucky to have the latest feature of the Vodaphone. That mobile tv app is simply a great feature.
  • It seems the one from Orange in France is better
