ROK brings TV to Sony phones

Mobile phones

If you want to watch TV on your mobile via GPRS, then you really should check out ROK. We’ve spoken highly of the ROK service previously, but with one or two concerns – primarily the lack of phones that the service is compatible with. That’s not as much of an issue now, with 19 handsets able to use the service, including Sony Ericsson’s hugely popular W800i and 6 other leading Sony phones.

The service currently offers 13 channels in its standard package – Pop World, CNN, Cartoon Network, M-Music, ITN, National Geographic, Tidy TV, SNTV, XTreme TV, Movie Trailer TV, F3, Sci Fi and Snoot Toons for a monthly fee of £9.99 or 99p for individial channels. But don’t forget, you’ll have to pay your provider data charges too.
