No Monday Night Football, dang vzw. Hope we can keep the NFL Network.

the picture is horrible on my gen 1 lotus lol.

Sk3lleton 03-12-2010 08:00 PM

Of course, it wasn't meant to play quality video. But my scp-3200 doesn't even run it!

I've been wondering about this myself, application wise its still on my phone and still playing videos.

I guess when the time comes, they'll hit the switch and nothing will come in...maybe xda will find a way ;).

ESPN Mobile TV free, that's pretty smart by Sprint no one should be mad about losing NFL network now (well most of the time).

the nfl network is clearer than espn mobile,just compare the two.will we have sportscenter,pti,around the horn and jm rome on the channel as well?

Sk3lleton 03-13-2010 07:41 AM

No, the scp-3200 just can't run video of any sort... youtube, flash, sprint tv, I got none.

boomhower 03-13-2010 08:06 AM

IMHO this has the potential to be better than NFL. Year round sports as opposed to half the year. I'm a big sports fan in general so I'll take quantity over quality so to speak.

Sk3lleton 03-13-2010 08:11 AM

That's only true if you like a sport at that time.

JeffDTD 03-13-2010 09:19 AM

I'm proud of Sprint... turning lemons into lemonade.

If they will fancy up the app a little bit, and ADVERTISE IT its a BIG PLUS!
