MobiTV tops 6 million subscriber total
Less than three months after its managed mobile television and radio network surpassed the 5 million subscriber threshold, MobiTV announced it now boasts more than six million subscribers. MobiTV--which is available on more than 350 handsets spanning 20 operator networks--credits the recent consumer surge to increasing viewer demand for event-driven television programming on mobile devices (like last summer's Olympics and the recent U.S. presidential election), increasing smartphone penetration and a trend toward bundling TV and radio services as elements in high-value wireless plans. The MobiTV lineup now offers more than 40 channels from content partners including NBC, ABC, ESPN, The Disney Channel, CNBC and MSNBC.
