Alltel Axcess TV On Demand

Alltel on Tuesday morning released its TV on Demand service, bringing its service up to par with offerings from Sprint and other carriers. Any subscriber with an EVDO data plan and certain video-capable phones can add an extra plan that opens download TV shows and other clips from Comedy Central, NBC, and several other major networks, letting them catch up on shows and show highlights anywhere they might be within range.

No mention was made of which exact phones support the services. Alltel splits the service into two tiers, with a basic $4 monthly package offering a handful of shows from Comedy Central, Discovery, Fox, NBC, and VH1. An extra $6 per month adds extra content from these stations plus videos from specialty channels such as Bravo, Sci-Fi, and Spike. The service should be available immediately.
