According to WP7Forum.ru, Nokia is set to launch a new app for television show fans. Nokia TV will be released in Finland with three channels: YLE, MTV3 and Nelopen. The app will enable Lumia handset owners to watch TV programmes via WiFi (or data connection) by searching, browsing and streaming episodes straight to their device.
Some notable features of Nokia TV:
- View TV shows provided by local networks.
- Videos can be downloaded to the device (presumably for offline usage).
- Does not use technology for mobile TV (DVB-H).
- Search for content / programmes within the application.
According to the WP7Forum.ru report, no information is yet available with regards to what countries will be receiving the app (and when) but it's safe to say that Nokia will be localizing the app for various Territories. Adding to the OEM collection, which already includes Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia Music, it's looking pretty bright for the Lumia Windows Phone future.
