MediaFLO Brings Expanded Live News Coverage To AT&T, Verizon
The new channels increase the amount of live breaking news and in-depth current affairs programming available to AT&T and Verizon Wireless subscribers, and will launch in time for the political party convention season. MediaFLO USA's mobile TV service is available to AT&T subscribers as AT&T Mobile TV and to Verizon Wireless customers as V CAST Mobile TV.
All three channels will offer simulcast programming--airing content at the same time as it appears on cable--and will give consumers on-the-go access to many of the most popular news shows on cable TV. In addition to the new channels, MediaFLO USA's mobile TV service provides consumers with news programming from CBS News on CBS Mobile; NBC News on NBC 2GO, and AT&T Mobile TV customers have access to a full-time CNN Mobile channel.
All programs are available to AT&T and Verizon Wireless subscribers in 58 major metropolitan areas nationwide, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, Seattle and Washington. --Tanya Irwin
