Content: Sprint Launches Audio and Video Service Targeting Hispanic Mobile Phone Users

Sprint announced the availability of Sprint TV En Vivo, a live Spanish-language video and audio service for mobile phones in the U.S. The high-speed service is available on select handsets equipped for the Sprint Power Vision(SM) network and offers a mix of Spanish- and English-language channels delivering breaking news, sports, entertainment, music videos, weather and other live programming that is specifically designed for the Hispanic community.
