Besides using your Windows Phone for calls and text messages, the next best thing is evidently media. And that includes watching TV on the go. While Hulu remains the king of mobile TV here in the US, its limited region access prevents it from being a global phenomenon. Luckily, Windows Phone users are about to get another service for their trusty phones.
FilmOn (http://www.filmon.com) is a company started in 2006 and they bring 500 live streaming TV channels and video on demand channels to the ‘net and increasingly, mobile. They already have apps for iOS, Android and even BlackBerry, so it’s about time Windows Phone gets on board. The company has had some legal issues, namely from US broadcasters who don’t want their content re-broadcasted, but evidently FilmOn won an appeals and they can still broadcast. It's seriously a neat service, especially if you're "cord cutters" like ourselves.
Anyway, the app is evidently about to enter private beta with users signing up online to get access. The app will feature the following:
- Watch hundreds of FREE live and VOD TV channels
- Local, Regional and theme filtered channel lists
- Easy access to favorite channels
- Remote DVR for recording your favorite shows and watch later (10 hours for FREE)
- Subscribe to paid FilmOn HD channels and DVR plans
Not a bad deal at all and between FilmOn staying alive despite US broadcasters and their wide availability of their apps, we’re excited to see this service come to Windows Phone.

Besides a Windows Phone 8 app, the company already has a viable Windows 8 solution, which can be found here in the Windows Store.
