Nokia has confirmed the existence of Nokia TV for their Nokia Lumia handsets.  The application is a streaming TV service for local Finnish broadcasters and allows users to browse or search through the available catalogues of catch-up TV services from major local broadcasters and then stream a chosen show directly to their phone, all without sign up or registration.

“With Nokia TV we are bringing existing services in Finland together in a convenient way. We’re making it easier for people to find and watch TV, while supporting broadcasters’ existing internet TV business models,” said Mika Suomela, head of TV and video at Nokia.

“Finland is the ideal country in which to introduce this service due to its advanced mobile user base and great existing broadcaster catch-up TV services.”

Unfortunately no plans to expand the service to other countries was announced on the Nokia Conversations blog, but we think UK iPlayer support would be an ideal next step.

The app will reach Finland “in the coming weeks”.
