AT&T and MobiTV Launch Live TV Subscription Service for Broadband


I've been using MobiTV on my PDA for quite awhile so I was pretty pleased to hear that MobiTV was the engine that was running the new AT&T Broadband service. According to the press release:

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) and MobiTV, Inc., the global leader in television and music services for all things mobile and broadband , today announced an agreement to offer a mobile television service to broadband users in the United States, including AT&T Yahoo!? High Speed Internet and AT&T WorldNet subscribers. The browser-based service, which will be called AT&T Broadband TV, will enable subscribers to use a computer to access a wealth of live programming while at home, at work, or on the go using wired and wireless broadband technologies.

Through the deal, AT&T becomes the first U.S. broadband provider to offer a live TV subscription service with MobiTV to consumers through any broadband connection. The service expands upon an earlier agreement that enables AT&T to offer MobiTV to customers who use thousands of AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots.

The AT&T Broadband TV service will initially have approximately 20 channels of live and made-for-broadband television content spanning national news, sports, entertainment and full-length music videos from top artists. Among the channels included in the initial channel lineup is Fox News,* Bloomberg, Oxygen, History Channel, Comedy Time, Toonworld, Maxx Sports and the Weather Channel.

The service is $19.99 a month which is a little higher than I'd like to see. You can check out the service for yourself with a 14 day trial at https://att.mobitv.com/do/welcome.
