A couple of options for getting Live CNBC Streaming Video on Android and iPhone
As far as we can tell, there is currently only one way to directly get live streaming CNBC video on an Android or Apple device (phones and tablets). E-Trade offers built-in streaming CNBC video on their Android and Apple versions of ETrade Mobile Pro and currently that seems to be the only way. We looked at ThinkorSwim and some other mobile applications, but none of them offers streaming CNBC just yet. Even the app published directly by CNBC does not offer live streaming video.
We tried out the live streaming CNBC video on ETrade Mobile Pro and it works very well. The picture was clear, there was no stuttering, and the delay was about 10 seconds when compared to our TV signal. To get it started, just load the ETrade Mobile Pro app, enter your ETrade login, select "Menu", and then select the "CNBC Video" icon. You can use WiFi or 3G to connect. We saw good results using both. The only real limitation we could find was that the video can only be displayed in landscape mode. However, considering that video resolution is intended to be wider than taller, this is probably for the best.
Possibly one other way to currently get Live Streaming CNBC Video on Android phones and tablets?
There is supposedly an Android app called "MobiTV" which offers streaming CNBC video (as well as a number of other channels), but we tried to subscribe with several Android phones from several carriers without luck. The closest we got was a message from Verizon VZ Apps saying that MobiTV was not available for our device or area. We also could not find any good reviews or mentions which would confirm that MobiTV is currently available and in heavy use, and certainly no discussion about anyone using it to stream CNBC video live on an Android phone/tablet or iPhone/iPad. Perhaps if someone out there is using MobiTV to stream live CNBC video they could let us know so that we can notify our readers.
