Watch the Pacquiao-Diaz Fight for Free on Smart myTV

This is one of those rare times when Smart can really plug their myTV as an on-demand, anytime, anywhere service in the Philippines. The Manny Pacquiao vs. David Diaz fight can be watched online for free over the Smart myTV network.

Starting 8am, you can get live streaming video straight from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for the entire match. If you own a Nokia N77 or a Nokia N92, just tune in to Channel 11.

That’s better than going for pay-per-view or going to cinemas at the mall. If only Smart was able to get the mobile TV policies approved earlier, they would have made bonus points in this arena.

The new Samsung Instinct has just been released and now available via Sprint. Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal thinks it’s an “ok” phone but definitely not an iPhone killer.
