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).

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.

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

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!
