  • Flo TV by Audiovox

    Embed this video


    FLOTV is a terrestrial television service developed by Qualcom and AUDIOVOX. AUDIOVOX created the hardware and Qualcom provides the service itself. FLOTV costs $499 for the hardware and $119 per year for the service. FLO TV offers 13 channels, however there are plans to add more. The display is 10.5" and FLOTV does not advise going any larger to avoid possible pixelation of shows like Sponge Bob Square Pants.

    How FLOTV Works: The service uses terrestrial repeaters rather than direct satellite tv. As a result, the problems that arise from satellite tv are not an issue such as weather or trees. The service is currently running on the analog channel 55, however analog channel 56 is also available. There are 13 stations on channel 55 and there is room for up to 20. There are 250 kb per channel.

        in light of last nights Superbowl commercials, has anyone looked into this? Do they offer a tv-out capable device? I don't think I'd be interested due to the usage fees, but it's still interesting.

          so it looks like this did not go so well. Qualcomm owns it and the tech crunch gossip is that they are looking to sell the spectrum and the brand/product.

          That makes Att cruise cast, flo tv and some others we know that never made it to the commercial market.

            Problem is this tech falls into an even smaller market then Car PC units. Plus people that have tvs in their cars (normal people), use DVDs, and iPods, and iPhones, and Zune. They don't want to have to pay a monthly or yearly fee for something that is so limited in channels. Us Car PC people have enough sense to just go with Sling Box and call it a day. Yes, a data plan costs $40.00 - $60.00 dollars, but I can have internet, youtube, etc, but best of all have Dish Network in my car with 250 + channels.
