Following the success of the BBC's iplayer platform they have today launched their live mobile TV platform for mobile phonesIt seems that the BBC is embracing the success of it's iplayer service by today launching a mobile TV portal for mobile devices. Right now support seems to be fairly patchy, which would suggest it's still in the beta stages but it all looks promising.

Currently the site lists access as only available over WiFi, with 3G support being added at a later date. Tests have shown currently the content is streamed at just over 100kbps, so if you've got a half decent data plan you'll be OK.

Be aware though a TV license is required to watch any live broadcast, which seems like a strange thing to have to do to recieve such a small sized video.
