FLO Pushes Back iPhone Add-On Tuner

SAN DIEGO — FLO TV missed its
target date for shipping a first-of-itskind
accessory that would add FLO
TV tuning to an iPhone and iPod
Touch, but the company insisted the
product is not far away.

FLO TV will launch the Mophiemade
accessory “as part of a larger Apple
strategy in the next several months,”
a spokesperson told TWICE.

Originally, the company planned
shipments sometime in the first half;
then during the CTIA convention in
late March, it said the device would
ship within four to six weeks.

The device, called Juice Pack TV, adds
subscription-based FLO TV tuning to
an iPhone and iPod Touch equipped
with a free FLO TV app. The accessory
will take the form of a protective
case that incorporates FLO TV tuner,
a battery to extend iPhone/Touch battery
life by 70 percent to 80 percent, and
Wi-Fi to send FLO TV broadcasts to
the attached iPhone/Touch as well to
up to three more iPhones and Touches
equipped with the FLO TV app. FLO
TV would be sent in encrypted form
to all of the iPhones and Touches, all of
which would simultaneously view the
same channel.
