Remember ROK? We featured the company earlier this week after it extended handset coverage of its mobile TV service for GPRS/EDGE mobiles. Well, apart from streaming TV, they’ve also been producing standalone full-screen TV shows and movies for phones – the latest of which is the Austin Powers International Man of Mystery movie.
The titles are available on copy-protected memory cards, almost like DVDs for your phone – just insert the card to a suitable phone or PDA, and you can any of more than 100 titles, including BBC classic comedies such as Little Britain and The Office as well as SpongeBob Squarepants and South Park and other movies such as Shawshank Redemption.
More than 30 leading smartphones including Nokia’s range of Symbian handsets as well as Microsoft handsets are compatible with ROK Player technology. You can check if yours is at the ROK Player website. Cards are priced at £18. The Austin Powers will initially be available to buy from ROK online, then available in high street phone shops .
