MobiTV Adds C-SPAN to Mobile Lineup

Sep 9, 2004  •  Post A Comment

Wireless video service MobiTV added C-SPAN and C-SPAN2 to its cellphone lineup this week, with the goal of providing C-SPAN’s election coverage to mobile users over the next few months.

The C-SPAN channels are among the latest news networks to be added to the growing spate of cellphone video services.

Many of the news networks are banking that election coverage will drive viewer interest in watching news on mobile phones. NBC News introduced a cellphone service in July, and ABC News beefed up its wireless video content this summer. MobiTV is available through Sprint for now.
