In today’s fast-paced world, we need information at every step and television is the most convenient and accessible source. FLO TV closes the gap between you and your favorite programs and news sources by providing them live on the pocket-sized FLO TV Personal Television. With a high-resolution screen and built-in stereo speakers, it accesses “live and time-shifted” programming via a dedicated multicast network so you can watch what you want when you want to.

The FLO TV Personal Television is a mobile TV device with a 3.5” 4:3 capacitive touch-screen that allows users to control the device with intuitive swipe gestures. The device, which has an integrated viewing stand and stereo speakers, has a long-life battery that supports five hours of viewing time and 300 hours on standby. FLO TV executives say the Personal TV’s large screen is a great way to show off the Personal Television’s picture quality compared to streaming services that rely on cellular networks for transport. The FLO TV device requires the FLO TV service, which is free the first 6 months and apparently the monthly fee there after is not defined yet. You also need to check to see if the FLO TV service is available in your area.

At the perfect size for mobile viewing and portability, the FLO TV Personal Television is an interesting gadget.  Programming on the FLO TV service is made for the mobile lifestyle. With a variety of live, simulcast, and time-shifted programming, you can watch prime time during the daytime or late at night. Don't want your children to access specific programs? Don't worry. Restrict individual shows by ratings or you can block entire channels.

The FLO TV Personal Television looks great and has many features. The battery life and sound quality are great for this device. But, the price remains a matter of concern; it’s simply too high for this kind of device.
