CenturyLink has released an update for its Prism TV app for mobile devices that expands the amount of live and on-demand content that can be delivered in or out-of-the home to mobile devices.

The new 3.0 version of the app now provides authenticated subscribers with access to as many as 25 live TV channels out of the home, or about 100 when the app is accessed on the customer’s home network. That’s up from four out-of-home channels and 35 channels in-home that were supported by the 2.0 version of the Prism TV app, according to a CenturyLink spokeswoman.

CenturyLink has developed Prism-branded TV Everywhere apps for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones, as well as Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet lineup. Azuki Systems is the “core platform provider” for the telco’s TV Everywhere service.

CenturyLink ended the third quarter of 2013 with 149,000 Prism TV subscribers. The telco currently offers the IP-delivered service in the following markets: La Crosse, Wis.; Columbia and Jefferson City, Mo.; Tallahassee, Fla. (as well as other portions of central and southwest Florida); Las Vegas; central North Carolina; Phoenix; Omaha, Neb.; and Colorado Springs and Highlands Ranch, Colo.    

The number of channels delivered via the app vary by service package and, in some cases, by location.
