Audiovox breaks new ground with their latest 7″ Portable DVD Player with FLO TV, where it will deliver the home TV experience in a portable form factor. While this means you won’t have access to your home theater system, at least you can be entertained just about anywhere you are. This could be a welcome break from the iPod or other portable media players, as you get to enjoy live moments as well as time-shifted TV shows on-the-go.
Thanks to its built-in rechargeable battery, stereo speakers and a 7-inch diagonal 16 x 9 widescreen display, the FLO TV service will be seen in new ways, where you can choose from children’s programming (Disney Channel, Nickelodeon), live sports, breaking news (CNN Mobile, FOX News Channel) and hit shows. Bored? Just slot in your favorite DVD and you’re good to go. Since it will rely on America’s largest dedicated mobile TV network, you won’t have to worry about buffering or bandwidth issues whenever you view your show. Only select Best Buy store locations will carry the DFL 710, where it will sell for $199.99 that is accompanied by a limited time offer for a three-month pre-paid subscription to the FLO TV service. Strangely enough, the device isn’t even up on the company website yet. [Press Release]
