Adding Sprint TV to Nexus S

When I was looking at the Nexus S at the Sprint store the rep told me that I could download Sprint TV, but I haven't been able to find it.  Can anyone help.  I would also like the NFL app too.

Not sure on the Sprint TV, but for nascar and football you just text football to 7777 or nascar to 7777.

Re: Adding Sprint TV to Nexus S

Since this device is a 'vanilla' Android device, the Sprint apps weren't tested or certified to work on it.  The apps may download and install successfully, yet may not function as expected or error out.  .

Nascar or Football:

  •     Send a text to "7777"
    •     for nascar, send a text with the word "nascar" in it
    •     for football , send a text with the word "football" in it
  •     Go to Menu > Settings > Applicaitons > Unknown sources and ensure unknown sources is check
  •     A link will be sent to you from Sprint to download the apk

For TV, NAV and other apps, you'll need the APK files.  Here's a link on Android Central that describes the process:

Please post back on how this works for you so others can benefit.  Thanks!

I have tried this multiple times since I got my NS4G and each time, I get a link to the same web page: http://sprint.us/nascar . When I click on the download link on that page I get "The requested item could not be found"

I used the EVO APK and it works fine.  So I would use that one specifically because the screen formatting and resolution in Sprint TV works with the Nexus S,   I am looking at Sprint TV right now.
