FLO TV to expand service to 39 new markets, extend reach by 60 million potential customers
Besides being able to access the network on cellphones, earlier this year the company reached an agreement with Audiovox to allow passengers in cars to watch FLO TV on video viewing equipment in the automobile. Passengers will be able to view the video on drop down screens or on screens embedded in armrests.
FLO TV sends video over the company's own mobile network including real time, shifted-time and simulcast programming from top networks like CBS, ESPN, FOX, MTV and NBC. The service is currently available on certain models of cellphones offered by Verizon and AT&T. The number of people watching television over their phone is growing as Nielsen reported a 52% increase in mobile viewers in the first quarter of this year over the same period last year.
