AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) has partnered with MediaFLO USA Inc, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), to launch AT&T Mobile TV with FLO. This offering will consist of a mobile TV service featuring high quality live programming.
The mobile TV service will launch in May 2008 on two new exclusive handsets, the LG Vu(TM) and the Samsung Access(TM). AT&T Mobile TV will also feature two exclusive channels, which will be announced soon. This new offering will deliver full-length TV content and sporting events from top networks, including programming from CBS Mobile, Comedy Central, ESPN Mobile TV, FOX Mobile, MTV, NBC 2GO, NBC News2Go and Nickelodeon.
The service will be launched initially on the LG Vu and Samsung Access phones.
For those of you who insist on driving without a headset on the road while you speak on the phone, please don’t think this is so cool you can’t wait to watch sports or soap operas on that little bitty screen while you are driving.
This may be more of a catch-up move than anything else. Verizon has been offering VCAST for close to 2 years……..
