ROK TV is offering live and on-demand mobile TV streamed over existing 2.5G and 3G and networks as a subscription service, specifically for Nokia Eseries devices via the Downloads! Service. It will initially be available in the UK, followed by Europe in August.
Two channel packages will be offered – a 5 channel ‘Strictly Business’ package for £5 a month, with a heavy emphasis on business news and information channels such as Bloomberg, CNBC Europe, EuroNews in 9 languages and regional news channels, and a 10 channel ‘ROK All’ TV package, to be charged at £10 a month containing all the live business news channels as well as additional sports news, music videos and comedy channels. As a trial, both TV packages will be free to view for the first 2 weeks.
ROK TV requires 10MB of GPRS data per hour of streaming.
