    A Whole New Way to Turn On Your Cell Phone
    Friday January 9, 8:33 pm ET

    ADULT ENTERTAINMENT EXPO, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- XTCMobile, a Las Vegas based company, announces the launch of the World's First Adult Mobile Television Network featuring All Adult -- All The Time -- 24/7 Mobile Streaming Channels from premiere Adult industry leader Wicked Pictures. XTCMobile broadcasts the hottest and most popular videos and mobile applications on Wicked Pictures Channel 69 and Wicked-To-Go Channel 96 along with the XTCMobile Theater Channel 88 featuring adult programming from Cable Entertainment Distributors.

    The service launches this weekend at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Consumers can purchase the XTCMobile Application for $7.99 per month for unlimited use on a subscription basis directly from the XTCMobile.com website.

    The XTCMobile Platform utilizes its unique and proprietary technology to offer mobile phone users the first generation of Adult Streaming Audio and Video to current handsets. While XTC Mobile is not directly affiliated with any mobile network operator at this time, the XTCMobile Platform allows the video service to be offered directly to customers over any open data network. For the initial launch, customers with Sprint PCS Vision enabled phones can immediately access XTCMobile content. The company has plans to enable the distribution of its Adult Mobile Cable Network and Channels both domestically and internationally on other Carrier networks in the coming year. Within the year, XTCMobile expects to offer its services to most US Carriers and Mobile Phones handsets.

    The video presentation represents the first generation offering of true video streaming to popular mobile phones on today's 2.5G wireless networks. The video will initially broadcast at approximately 1.5 frames per second providing a 'slideshow' type video presentation. Broadcast TV runs at approximately 15 to 30 frames per second. Mobile video quality is dependent upon network and handset capabilities and will only improve in the future. The XTCMobile user experience is truly novel and the content is optimized for the mobile screens and frame rates to provide clear and crisp audio and video.

    The company plans to add additional channels from other reputable Adult Content Distributors over the next year and anticipates accommodating a channel line up of up to 90 Adult Channels.

    Starting in February 2004, XTCMobile will begin offering Mobile Downloadable Video Clips and other Mobile Applications such as Adult Ringtones, Moantones, Screen Savers, and Games such as the Wicked Pictures "Sexy or Not" interactive game application. Adult mobile applications can be currently purchased from the WickedToGo Mobile Products Site WickedToGo. com utilizing the XTCMobile Distribution Platform to a range US Wireless Carrier customers.

    For Adult Content Distributors -- Mobile Video and Mobile Multimedia Applications such as branded Screen Savers, Ringtones and Specialty applications like games, mini-movies and animations will open new markets and revenue opportunities around the world. As cellular phones sales out number computer sales 3 to 1, the market potential is enormous.

    According to J. Morrison, a founder and Media Director of XTCMobile, XTCMobile wants to provide mobile customers with a compelling and engaging mobile adult experience that will entertain, not offend, users. "We are committed to providing a responsible presentation of Adult Content to Mobile Phones," J. Morrison said. "All customers will be age verified, each phone will be enabled with password protection and all content presented on the network will be reviewed prior to broadcast. The XTCMobile platform will never engage in spamming customers or their cell phones nor will it ever disclose any customer information to other entities for any purpose."

    "It is amazing to watch the interest and enjoyment of people watching Adult content on a mobile phone or interacting with Adult mobile applications like Moantones. The XTCMobile Network video and product offerings will only improve in future, providing the standard for Adult Mobile Video and Product Distribution," said Morrison.

    Stay tuned to XTCMobile for the best Mobile Adult Video and Applications. XTCMobile can be purchased at xtcmobile. com

    It looks like it is available on the same Sprint handsets that can run MobiTV, specifically the Sanyo 8100, Sanyo 5500, Sanyo 5400, and Samsung A620. I signed up to test it out, pretty neat<vbg>

    Should be useful in the future when handsets can actually display it with the correct amount of frames.
    But it's cool none the less......

    Right, it will be a lot better when the video actually streams. Forsee talked about this yesterday at CES, he said PCS will have streaming video at 15 frames/sec by the end of THIS year.

    Here's the same comment from another sprint rep:

    Because Sprint only a year ago upgraded its network to typical data speeds of 50,000 to 70,000 bits per second (slightly faster than personal computer dial-up connections to the Internet), the company doesn't expect to make additional speed upgrades soon, said spokesman Dave DeVries. But Sprint said better phones could make video and audio streaming speeds up to 15 times faster.

    "We've optimized the viewing experience to match what current phones can do. But as phone devices become more powerful we'll be able to offer a maximum of 15 frames per second in 2004 without network upgrades," said Dale Knoop, manager of Sprint PCS multimedia services. (For comparison, a TV signal is 30 frames per second.)

    It was only a matter of time before this came along. It'd be nicer if these were simply channels on MobiTV rather than something completely separate. For 7.99 a month, you're better off just getting Playboy or Spice on your cable/satellite network. Unless of course someone actually needs porn on-the-go..

    Huh... interesting.

    And apparently they only support Sprint at this point, and only these phones:

    Sanyo 8100
    Sanyo 5500 (VM4500)
    Sanyo 5400 (RL2500)
    Samsung A620 (VGA1000)
    As the audio experience is integral to this game,
    for maximum enjoyment, headphones or an ideal listening
    environment are highly recommended.

    I personally enjoy pornography (especially pornography involving cute college guys), and think that Bill O'Reilly and Fox News are corrupting our society. So I guess we're even...

    You would think some one would have done this sooner.

    Progress report:

    The content is pretty limited, there are three channels and they play the same thing over and over, so this app needs some work. The frame rate is also weak, although the audio is to die for<vbg>

    With a better frame rate, which Sprint says is coming this year, and at least a little more variety, this app will sell.
