What's on SPB TV, Windows Phone 7 users?

May 26th, 2011 – SPB Software, a leading mobile software developer, announces the release of SPB TV for Windows Phone 7 devices. Windows Phone 7 supports a unique smooth streaming technology that was used by SPB Software to bring the compelling and uninterrupted streaming experience to WP7 users.

The best in class solution for watching live mobile TV and video on demand which is extremely popular among users is now available for Windows Phone 7.

With its arrival to Windows Phone 7, SPB TV covers 100% of existing mobile devices with 3G and desktop platforms on the market.

What's on SPB TV, Windows Phone 7 users?

SPB TV solution is a one-of-a-kind due to its mobile client with a unique user-friendly interface. It is optimized to meet all the requirements of mobile TV viewers and offers the same level of experience as watching TV at home. The user has an opportunity to make an informed decision about the channel to watch even without launching it. A channel selection screen provides all the needed information about the running TV program including a screenshot and TV guide information. While the selected channel is streaming full-screen, the user can choose another channel by seeing a preview picture of it in Picture-in-Picture mode. This makes switching between channels on mobile devices easy and natural. Due to the Smooth Streaming technology the playback of content can be optimized by switching video quality in real-time and the stream can be adjusted according to the bandwidth capabilities.

SPB TV 2.0 is available for Windows Phone 7 users absolutely for free and requires no subscription fee.

SPB TV is also available as a solution for mobile operators. SPB TV Mobile Operators Solution allows carriers to couple SPB's proven solution with their own infrastructure and various subscription models.
