MobiRadio Available for Cingular Customers
Posted on 15-Nov-2005 14:43. | Tags Filed under: News.



Cingular Wireless and MobiTV, Inc. are launching the MobiRadio service for Cingular subscribers. Cellular customers can now listen to more than 40 channels of commercial free digital music streamed directly to their mobile phones.

MobiRadio will offer dozens of interruption-free audio music channels programmed by Music Choice, a music network. The channel line-up features a wide variety of popular music genres, including Urban, Rock, and Country, in addition to Electronica, Reggae, Jazz, and Classical. Cingular says the Music Choice channels are updated regularly so subscribers hear a never ending stream of great music from both established and emerging artists.

MobiRadio on Cingular is a rich consumer application which displays album art, song and artist information during playback. In the coming months, Cingular and MobiTV expect to expand the services offered through MobiRadio by integrating the ability to instantly purchase related ringtones and other associated content as the music plays directly from the customer’s Cingular phone.

“The mobile phone is a device that many people have with them all the time. Giving Cingular customers virtually anytime, anywhere access to their favorite music, without the need to carry an extra device, is the ultimate in convenience and surely a music lover’s dream,” said Jim Ryan, vice president, consumer data services, Cingular Wireless. “We are excited to begin our foray into wireless radio with MobiTV’s new service, MobiRadio, which gives our customers 44 channels of high quality music from which to choose.”

MobiRadio on Cingular is currently available on the Nokia 6620, Sony Ericsson S710 and Z500a, but will be available on additional handsets soon. The cost is US$6.99 a month plus kilobyte usage.
