In May, millions of AT&T subscribers will have access to television via AT&T Wireless. Credit Qualcomm’s MediFlow whose technology will be responsible for this service and expect it to compete with with a similar service from Verizon Wireless.
What sorts of programs might we see on mobile TV? How about CBS Mobile, Comedy Central, ESPN Mobile TV, FOX Mobile, MTV, NBC 2GO, NBC News2Go and Nickelodeon?
Will the iPhone support AT&T mobile TV? No. But the Vu from LG and the Access from Samsung will.

Boy, the battery companies have got to be salivating as they read this news.
