Mobile broadcast network FlyTunes has added video and audio podcasts to its offerings, in addition to a new user interface and a customizable channel guide.
The new video and audio channels cover a wide range of topics, including news, entertainment, politics, kids & family, health, comedy, business and technology. FlyTunes now offers users over 350 channels of music, talk, video and podcast entertainment choices.
FlyTunes is also releasing a new user interface that lets users quickly find and select desired channels from two simple dialog boxes. Each selected channel now displays more detailed information, including an SMS text message link to allow users to send friends a direct link to listen in.
The new MyGuide feature allows users to personalize their mobile media experience by enabling or disabling individual channels and even entire genres from the selection menu.
Note that FlyTunes is at FlyTunes.fm, not .com.
