MobiTV Finally Comes To iPhone

After years of success on everything from basic, free handsets to HTC smartphones, MobiTV is now gracing the iPhone in its most feature-rich release to date.

You could say that MobiTV was ahead of its time when it first launched more than 5 years ago. At that time, most people didn't even dare connect to the Internet on their phones. The idea of actually offering live TV through a mobile network was groundbreaking.

Since then, MobiTV has become the main name in mobile video offerings. Its service now reaches through all of the major carriers and is available on hundreds of devices. The latest addition to that is the iPhone.

It is odd that it took so long for one of the biggest names in mobile to come to Apple's top-selling phone, but it was working on creating a very special version of the app for such a special device.

The MobiTV app for iPhone has a completely overhauled user interface and allows in-app purchasing of more channels, premium content, and subscription services. The service offers eight live channels, like Comedy Central and ABC News Now, that play just as though the user is watching TV at home. And there are more than 30 channels of on-demand programming.

Pricing tiers are set up at subscription rates for $9.99 a month, or at discounted rates if you buy multiple months up front. More info on the iPhone version of the app is available at mobitv.com.
