Smart and 360media finally launched it’s mobile TV offering named Smart myTV. Like any other service offering, the price will always be the main selling point for it to be hot or not. Just look at what they did with the Meridian to Smart Bro transition.
For a monthly subscription fee of Php488 that includes premium channels such CNN, MTV Philippines, Cartoon Network, National Geographic, Pinoy Box Office, The History Channel, Solar Sports, Basketball TV, ETC and Jack TV, will you bite or not?
For an initial 10 channels, that brings down the cost of each channel to Php48.8 a month. If they’ll add the local ones – GMA 7, ABS-CBN, IBC5, QTV – or even ANC, the ttoal package would look very enticing.
I’ve seen several demo of this mobile TV and though I am impressed by the quality of the signal reception, I ‘m underwhelmed with the handsets that are ready for DVB-H. The Nokia N92 is just so huge and bulky. The upcoming N77 looks much better though.
If you’re on the Smart network now and have one of them DVB-H, you can try Smart myTV for free until the end of August 2007.
