Sprint brings full-length movies to mobiles

Sprint has been working to bring a full-length, movie-streaming service for mobiles for some time. The service currently features 10 full-length films customers can stream to their Vision phones serially in roughly five-minute increments. The movies are somewhat out of date, with titles such as "Short Circuit"(1986) and "One-Eyed Jacks"(1961) being on offer. However, MSpot's content library is currently growing.

"The closer you get to the theatrical release date the more complicated the negotiations with the movie studios," MSpot CEO Daren Tsui said. "We'll eventually get to the point where we'll be able to get movies soon after theatrical release."
