Fox Mobiles introduces Bitbop: Video Subscription Service For Smartphones
By on March 25th, 2010

Fox Mobile gives a new dimension to the smartphones by introducing Bitbop – a new wireless subscription service that delivers on demand mobile TV and movies directly to U.S. consumers smartphones.

Bitbop’s mobile video subscription service is very simple to use. It   provides full-length television programs for streaming as well as temporary download. This amazing service is available for just $9.99 a month. It also allows you to manage a queue of your viewing choices. Bitbop’s service works on most advanced technology handsets like iPhone, almost all Androids and several BlackBerry models.

Bitbop service’s launch date has not yet been announced but it is expected to arrive this spring.

Though this service seems to be very nice, we can’t yet be sure that the carrier networks will be able to cope with 3G bandwidth requirements to provide uninterrupted viewing. Lags in video playback will kill all the joy of watching them. The temporary download feature is not yet quite ready and it might be the only solution for slower networks.
