Introduction

Free TV Programs to Your Cell Phone .

Site Overview

This site helps people understand the evolving mobile tv technologies that will allow you to watch your favorite TV programs on your cell phone. These capabilities fall into two primary categories. The first, are Internet-capable mobile phones that will stream on-demand programming from sources (services like Hulu or possibly your own stored Tivo content via something like SlingPlayer Mobile through your internet-connected home network) to your web-capable cell phone. The second category involves phones that will be able to receive local broadcast television signals from services like MobiTV. The Open Mobile Video Coalition is working to help establish this new set of mobile tv services. Many people are hoping Apple will provide some connection between their Apple TV platform and iPhones some day.

Cable Companies Streaming TV to Your Cell Phone

Cable companies, like Comcast, are doing their best to hold on to subscribers in the face of competition from the telephone companies and the Internet. They are increasingly planning to enable existing customers to access tv content from their pcs and cell phones at no additional charge.
