Watch the NBA All-Star Game on iPhones over 3G

Turner Sports will provide live video coverage of this weekend’s NBA All-Star game online and via an iPhone app (streamable over 3G!). While the video will be live, it is not a webcast of the televised game, Turner still wants you to watch the action on oldteevee (along with all those ads). Instead, iPhone and web watchers will get four different camera angles.

Available today, the iPhone app is 99 cents; it will feature live streaming coverage of Saturday night’s skills competitions (dunks, 3-point shots, etc.) as well as Sunday’s All-Star game.

Orb is powering the video streaming for the app, and according to an Orb representative, the user will be able to choose between streaming the game over EDGE, 3G or Wi-Fi. Being WiFi-only has limited the mobility of some mobile apps like Joost’s, so freeing it up over 3G is exciting.
