SPB TV has been updated to v2.0, and the mobile TV app has lost its price tag in the process. Now free, the streaming TV software offers over 150 channels in more than 20 languages, and is advert supported; SPB promises the ads themselves only last as long as it takes for the video to buffer.
There’s also support for larger-screen devices like Android tablets, a picture-in-picture mode, video on demand and faster channel switching. SPB has also switched to H.264 for better quality video that’s more forgiving of lower-bandwidth connections. You’ll need an Android 1.6 device or higher; more information here, and you can find SPB TV in the Android Market.
