Fashion TV provides a wide spectrum of programs appealing to sought-after audiences of both genders.
SmartVideo is the only company in the world that can deliver state-of-the-art, high-quality live television at an average of 15 frames per second, even to low-bandwidth devices operating on today's existing 2.5g cellular networks.
