MobiTV Subscription Service Brings Live TV To Apple iPhone

Until now, getting live TV on the iPhone took some effort. There was the SlingPlayer app that enabled SlingPlayer owners the ability to stream their Pay-TV content to their phone, but there wasn't a real substitute for the likes of Sprint TV on the iPhone. But MobiTV is hoping to change that, and their new app--which just got approved and listed in the App Store--is the software to do it.

MobiTV brings live TV, sports, breaking news and other entertainment options to iPhone owners, and there's also a user interface that makes it easy to sift through the various portals. Consumers can use the in-app purchasing feature to download an additional content package that includes eight channels of live programming from marquee brands, over 30 channels of on-demand TV that feature over 150 titles of full-length programming across news, entertainment, children’s and sports genres. The additional content package is available in one, three and six month subscriptions for $9.99, $24.99, and $44.99, respectively.

That's not all that bad considering just how much TV options cost on AT&T feature phones, but it still feels expensive considering that Sprint's Everything Plan includes TV streaming for free. But hey, if you're sold on the iPhone, this is about your best option.
