Television networks are now trying to play catch up with YouTube by offering consumers prime-time television shows on their cell phones.
On Wednesday, NBC Universal announced that it would let viewers purchase full-length shows like The Office and Heroes to play on their phones. This new service will be delivered through MobiTV 'allowing viewers to stream full episodes of top-rated shows starting at $1.99 for a 24-hour period after the show airs.'
What's great about this is that you don't need to fill up your phone's memory card by downloading shows- unlike Apple's iPod video player. Now you can be watching your fave shows instantly, without the hassle of wasting time and memory.
What do you think? Will this be a popular new trend - TV on cell phones? I think it would be pretty cool if you pay a monthly fee and have unlimited access to certain shows. Now that would be sweet.
