[The Audiovox 7" Portable DVD Player with FLO TV lets consumers access live mobile TV on a portable DVD player.]
Hauppage, NY -- Audiovox Corporation and FLO TV Incorporated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, today introduced the new Audiovox 7" Portable DVD Player with FLO TV™, offering television, sports and movie enthusiasts another way to access live mobile television. The Audiovox Portable DVD Player with FLO TV allows consumers to watch epic moments on live and time-shifted TV shows or relax with their favorite DVDs while on the go.
The player delivers high-quality picture and audio features, a built-in rechargeable battery, stereo speakers and a 7-inch diagonal 16 x 9 wide screen. With the FLO TV service, viewers can select from children's programming (Disney Channel, Nickelodeon); live sports; breaking news (CNN Mobile, FOX News Channel) and hit shows to complement their DVD collection. Because the FLO TV service is delivered over America's largest dedicated mobile TV network, there are no buffering or bandwidth issues for a hassle-free viewing experience.
"Audiovox has been successfully delivering the award-winning installed automotive FLO TV solution to retailers and car dealers since the beginning of this year," said Tom Malone, president of Audiovox Electronics Corporation. "This new system expands our product offerings to the portable DVD market where we expect the addition of FLO TV will drive us to the leadership position there as well — showing consumers not only how to watch but, with the addition of FLO TV, expanding their options for what to watch as well. FLO TV's breadth of TV content and Audiovox's commitment to quality manufacturing makes a wonderful pairing for people who can't miss a moment of their favorite shows."
"This product represents the latest step in our ongoing efforts to bring live mobile TV to every small screen," said Bill Stone, president of FLO TV. "With Audiovox's Portable DVD Player with FLO TV, consumers who enjoy taking their media with them get the unique dual capability of playing DVDs and watching live television on the same device."
