BlackBerry launching TV streaming application?

Mobile phones

blackberry-video.jpgRumours abound that BlackBerry will be launching a TV streaming service next week that’ll let users watch their favourite episodes of TV shows from their handsets.

There’s scarce detail other than that, but it seems like it’ll be a flat-rate subscription per month for a service, it’ll use a device’s Wi-Fi connection, and multiple content providers have been confirmed.

Given BlackBerry’s current keenness on applications, this announcement wouldn’t be out of kilter with their overall strategy. It’s interesting that they’re avoiding 3G, relying on Wi-Fi instead. Just think of the shows as video podcasts, I suppose, and it all makes sense.
