BBC launches TV live to mobiles

April 7, 2009

The BBC is making sure that its services can be seen no matter what device the viewer is using, with TV no longer restricted to the television set.

The latest device to be chosen by the BBC is the mobile phone.

It has released a beta version of “Live TV”, a 24 hour live TV service, which is limited to just two handsets, the Nokia N96 and 5800.

The handsets have to be Wi-Fi enabled hence the limited range. However the BBC is working on a version that can work over the 3G network, which would mean that more handsets could pick the service up.

Currently the service offers access to BBC one, two, three and four, as well as CBBC, CBeebies, BBC News and BBC Parliament, plus radio stations Radio one, one Extra, two, three, four, six, and seven and the BBC Asian Network.
