BBC going Mobile

The BBC has recently announced that its TV and radio channels will be available on some mobile phones for a trial period. They write that:

For an initial 12 months, a range of broadcast output will be syndicated to the Vodafone, Orange and 3 networks. Subscribers to their TV packages will be able to watch BBC One, BBC News 24 and BBC Three, with the exception of some sport and bought-in programmes. The BBC said the trial would test both the effectiveness of the 3G network and the demand for BBC channels...

...Subscribers will be able to listen to up to eight BBC radio stations including Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4, 6 Music, BBC 7 and Asian Network. The trial will start before the end of April. Bosses said the trial would help shape future mobile strategy at the BBC.
