SPB TV released for Nokia N900 and Maemo 5

SPB TV released for Nokia N900 and Maemo 5I have been so happy with my Nokia N8 (and Windows Phone 7 device) that I forgot about my Nokia N900. I just received the news that SPB TV is now available for the Maemo platform so I pulled out my N900, charged it up, and installed the new software. It also gave me a chance to update other pieces of software and discover the N900 really is a fantastic piece of work.

SPB TV is the first streaming TV application I have seen for Maemo and with the integrated kickstand on the device it does give you a nice viewing option. SPB TV is available on virtually all of the mobile platforms now and offers some decent content for free. There are actually now more than 150 channels from over 20 countries. SPB Software reported that there are more than 2 million users as well.

As listed in their press release, the main features of SPB TV for Maemo include:

  • Full Screen TV player with picture-in-picture mode
  • Unique TV browser with fast channel launching and switching
  • A wide selection of public live TV channels
  • Integrated TV Guide with a list of current and upcoming TV shows
  • On-screen control panel
  • Video quality switcher
  • Advanced Video Codec support
Most of the stations are foreign stations, but I do enjoy the Christian stations and a couple that have football and rugby coverage. Have you tried out SPB TV and if so, what do you think of it?

It’s working pretty well on my N900, if I disable WiFi and connect over GPRS. Any attempt with WiFi caused either a crash or streaming error message.

Bonjour, j’utilise SPB TV sur mon N900 depuis une dizaine de jours puisqu’il est dispo sur Ovi store. Il fonctionne très bien et ce quelque soit la connexion utilisée. Cela faisait longtemps que je l’attendais car je l’utilisais déjà sur mon HTC Pro2.

Working fine over wifi for me.

A couple of days ago I was watching some Russian TV station (I think) which had English language movies with subtitles.

SPB has been availeble for some time already for N900, and is working like a charm here, great app.

This is a great application. You can stream TV and you get a decent picture.

Great software. Shame not much content from UK stations. I installed it, ran it and it was great, but uninstalled because not much use in UK.

Mobile Network O2 is not good in UK. Only one tv program was running for 1second (I’ve checked all of [en], [es] and [pl] programs). Rest of them have connection errors.

I have to check wifi – but at the moment it’s difficult while using 1MB network…
