Cingular goes live with MobiTV
Posted on 26-Jan-2005 08:28. | Tags Filed under: News.

MobiTV has launched its live television service on Cingular Wireless. For MobiTV, this launch marks a significant milestone as the company moves into its second year of operations distributing its service on two of the nation's largest carriers. Within the past 60 days, the company has effectively doubled its potential market in the U.S. through an October launch on AT&T Wireless' mMode service, prior to AT&T's acquisition by Cingular, and today's launch on Cingular's MEdia Net service.

The live television service will be available to Cingular Wireless subscribers using the Nokia 6620, Motorola V3 (RAZR), Motorola V220, Motorola V180, and soon on the Motorola V400 and V600 handsets.

With MobiTV, Cingular subscribers can watch live news, sports and entertainment programming on 22 channels, including MSNBC, CNBC, ABC News Now, NBC Mobile, FOX Sports, Discovery, TLC, C-SPAN, and other music, sports, fashion, and comedy channels.

The MobiTV service can be purchased directly from the phone. After downloading the service, MobiTV will be launched from the phone's Main Menu.

The fee for MobiTV on the Cingular network is US$9.99 per month, and the company is offering a free three-day trial.
