ROK is gradually building up across-the-board access to its ROK TV service, with Symbian 3 handsets now compatible with the service, including the Nokia N71, N73, N80 and N93.
ROK TV offers video streaming to mobile phones via 2.5G GPRS at what it claims is a faster frame rate than any existing 3G TV service. ROK TV currently offers 21 channels and is available in the UK, China and the USA. In the UK channels can be viewed individually for 99p per month or all channels for £9.99 plus network data charges.
“To be able to add these new high-end handsets to our compatibility list is a major development in the deployment of mobile TV services worldwide,” said Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK. ROK also expects to expand further in 2007, with plans to build and operate 30 white-label mobile TV services over both 2.5G and 3G for selected mobile networks globally.
