Fox Releases Hulu-Like Mobile App

Fox's Mobile Group has launched a mobile beta application called Bitbop that provides free access to full-length TV shows on your phone. For now, users can sign-up for a trial on its Web site and the application is free and compatible on four BlackBerry phones. Like Hulu, it's loaded with TV shows from 25 content partners, including News Corp. NBC The Food Network, A&E, CBS TLC, USA and MTV.

Previously, Fox Mobile's EVP of Global Products Joe Bilman told mocoNews that the application will be free, but in order to access to the whole catalog, a subscription will cost $10 a month. The service is expected to work over WiFi and 3G, and to support a variety of handsets, including the iPhone and Android-based smartphones. The Web site only lists TV shows for now, but says movies will be coming soon.
