SKY Television and Vodafone today announced the launch of a new TV service, SKY Mobile TV. The new mobile service, for customers of Vodafone with 3G handsets, will revolutionise how people will be able to view television in New Zealand. The service will be available from early 2007 and will comprise a bundle of at least eight channels for a $2.50 per week subscription. As an introductory offer, early subscribers will receive the first three weeks free.
SKY Mobile TV will deliver a variety of entertainment and information channels, including an exclusive made-for-mobile news channel [Sky News] plus sport and documentary programmes. Some channels will be broadcast as live and others will be edited for mobile.
