Television on mobile is all geared up to be the next big thing as UK provider Orange, rolls out a mobile handset service, which will offer customers top TV shows and channels.
Channels such as Cartoon Network and CNN will be made available for a monthly subscription of £10. This will be UK's first TV-on-the-mobile service, which will allow customers to watch news, sport and entertainment programmes on their phone.
Running over Orange's high-speed 3G network, the service – which will be available from next week – has an initial line-up of nine channels including ITN News, CNN, Big Brother, Celebrity Love Island, Comedy Time, Cartoon Network, Toon World, Fashion TV and extreme sports. Further channels will be available in the coming weeks.
All of the channels will be streamed over the Orange 3G network and are available through the new Orange TV section on Orange World. Customers need to be in 3G coverage to use the service.
Orange TV will initially be available on the Nokia 6680 from Orange, with further handsets to follow throughout the year. Customers can download the TV application for free from Orange World, then pay a subscription to watch the channels.
