Crackle Movies Come To FLO TV


LAS VEGAS — Qualcomm’s FLO TV subsidiary has begun offering a channel dedicated to catalog movies from Sony-owned Crackle.com, the online video-streaming site.

FLO TV is broadcasting the movies back-to-back over a dedicated channel to FLO TV’s handheld Personal Television, in-vehicle A/V systems offered by Audiovox, and FLO-TV-equipped cellphones offered by AT&T Wireless.

The channel’s content is included at no extra charge to a consumer’s existing monthly subscription price.

Other planned FLO TV enhancements include tiered subscription options and TV-program downloads to select FLO TV devices.

Wireless-Dealers Association Forms


LAS VEGAS — A hybrid trade association and buying consortium designed to help independent cellular retailers compete more effectively with national chains and carrier-owned stores has formed.

The organization, the Wireless Convergence Network (WiCON), was founded by executives from The Mobile Solution, a 375-store wireless chain that was one of T-Mobile’s largest exclusive dealers before it was sold off last year, said WiCON CEO and co-founder Scott Tibbets.

The group will offer marketing programs designed for smaller dealers, discounted retail support services, cellular accessories discounts and openmarket handsets, said Tibbets.
