NBC Mobile Carries Notre Dame Football

NBC will simulcast the remaining Notre Dame football games it airs this fall on an NBC Sports mobile channel. The channel's backbone is MobiTV, available via a range of carriers, including Sprint and AT&T.

Six games remain, including this Saturday's against Michigan State, for the 0-3 team whose home games have been carried by NBC for years. NBC Sports is one of about 100 channels available to mobile subscribers with certain handsets. They pay an additional $10 through their carrier for the MobiTV service.

NBC is expected to use the ad breaks that come on TV for their own on-air promos on mobile, a representative for MobiTV said. The slate of games is highlighted by the Oct. 20 match-up with top-ranked USC.

Privately held MobiTV's other channels include a non-sports NBC offering and MSNBC feed, along with ABC News Now, Fox Sports and ESPN 3GTV, among others.
