Watch free television on your Windows Phone 8 device with FilmOn TV, now available in beta
Want to catch some free television on your Windows Phone 8 handset? Now in beta at the Windows Phone Store is FilmOn TV. This app is already available for Android and Windows 8 and now makes its debut for Windows Phone 8. Choose from television networks in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and Asia. And for a small additional charge, you can watch in HD and record your favorite shows.

Since the app is in beta, you can't just mosey down to the Windows Phone Store, download, and install it. Instead, you need to hit the sourcelink, fill in your name, email address, and the name of the Windows Phone model that you're using. You'll get emailed with a link to the app.

The app offers hundreds of free live and video-on demand television channels, both local and regional. You can get up to 10 hours free of DVR recording and there are paid HD Channels and DVD plans available.

Again, if you're interested in the beta version of this Windows Phone 8 app, click on the sourcelink below.

Searched the same on friend's 520, can't find the app on WPS for India. Instead I have Live TV which is published by FilmOn TV Inc. :)

Did you read the article? You can't get it from the app store.

Have you tried out the Lumia 1520, gotta admit I saw it in the O2 store but only in red, but the display was out of this world along with the fluid UI. Really want one in yellow!

I have a Red 1520.. People think I'm being a mindless fanboi when I say that this is the most awesome device ever, but I really do believe that it is just that cool.. I've had it for a little over a week now, and I still am amazed by the design, and that crazy screen.. If you use the dark theme, turn the brightness to high, and adjust the color temperature all the way up to max, this screen really turns electric.. I swear this is the best screen ever put on a smartphone.. I live here in Arlington, Texas, so I have the slightly modified AT&T version with no built in QI charging, and only 16gb of storage.. Nevertheless, not having wireless charging right now is is bitc#, but the expandable storage gives me the opportunity to have up to 80gb on board.. The device is absolutely amazing❕.. And, this version of WP8.0-3Black is super smooth, and quick..
There are to very well known bugs with the 1520.. There's the screen brightness dimming bug, and the super sensitive screen bug.. With all settings set to manual, and brightness set to high, the screen periodically reduces brightness about 10-20% without your permission.. This is extremely annoying, needs a patch quickly.. Also, when that say "super sensitive touch" they mean it! They increased the voltage just a little too much with the 1520, and this causes a lot of miss selections.. WP8.1-0whatever needs a setting to manually adjust the screen sensitivity in set increments..
Anyways, the 1520 is absolutely amazing from a hardware, and software standpoint.. This is what happens when the the hardware and software are designed for each other..

Very well said, thumbs up, the most detailed review ever. Couldn't have had it better from someone whom actually owns a 1520, see I was going to consider the 1020 but i myself prefer the larger screen. Either way, may actually trade both my reliable Note 2 and S3 for both the 1020 and 1520.
