FLO TV for iPhone demoed

FLO TV, Qualcomm’s own TV broadcast service for phones, doesn’t offer an iPhone app. Yet. We’ve just spied one catching FLO TV signals and chucking them up on screen in the wild. But is there any point when there are so many ways to catch live TV on the iPhone already?

Qualcomm let slip it would enable FLO TV iPhone support when iPhone OS 3.0 was unveiled earlier in the year, as it allows support for third party hardware. Now we’ve finally seen it in action, courtesy of a FLO TV receiver that picks up the signal and streams via Wi-Fi to the iPhone.

Elgato Eye TV iPhone app: secret 3G streaming

At first glance, it sounds smart. Who doesn’t like TV beamed straight onto their iPhone? Except, oh wait, you can do that without the need to carry a dongle that’s nearly the size of an iPhone around with you. And without the need for a monthly subscription.

Qualcomm says the FLO TV iPhone set up is just a proof of concept at the moment, so don’t expect to see it on the iPhone App Store too soon. In the meantime, you might want to check out Sky Mobile TV, SlingPlayer or Elgato‘s offerings.

      Please don’t tell porkies here! It’s a concept device, not on sale, and even if it was there’re no broadcasts being made yet! Tut tut….
