    Why am I paying $10 a month for this useless service? Put on ABC "live" TV and there is no Lakers/Celtics game. Its 2 hours of Desperate Housewives and some other BS. I have yet to see any LIVE TV on the "live" channels. What a ripoff this service is.

    Guess it's a good thing you don't pay $10 a month for it?

    Right now ESPN Live is playing LIVE Baseball tonight.

    They say "live" which is different than "on demand" I think. It's not always going to be identical to what else is being shown on TV.

    Like now Around the Horn is on ESPN live, but not on real ESPN.

    I understand your frustation, but the $10 fee has nothing to do with Sprint TV/Nav/etc. My 4 year old Sanyo flip phone has SprintTV and always has. Those apps come with ANY Sprint phone/plan.

    yeh as far as i know you dont have to pay for sprint tv there is an extra tier of service that costs ten bux extra and gives u a lot more channels but theres already plenty to keep anyone occupied on the free service

    The $10 is for HD add-on for the TV. That's what Sprint told me. And for 4G but I'm sure we all knew that.

    I've played around with Sprint TV, it doesn't seem all that great, and when I select options for Full Episodes, I see a bunch of clips 8 minutes long... Am I supposed to load 8 minutes at a time?

    Interesting, but that's not why I bought my Evo, but I have to say it kinda irritates me as well.

    Streaming video isn't really a concern of mine at the moment though as I don't have 4G in my area.

    I'm the type of person that gets a 32GB MicroSD and downloads a bunch of movies... I've never relied on streaming...

    In my experience, everything that's free usually isn't worth watching... usually composed of really old movies and TV shows I don't care about.
