On Thursday AT&T said that it will start offering live mobile TV service from MediaFlo in May. It will be branded simply “AT&T Mobile TV.” The new service will operate on two handsets, the LG Vu and the Samsung Access. Subscribers will have access to eight channels of live TV and get two exclusive channels. Pricing information should be available in May when the service launches.
The LG Vu has a touchscreen and 2 megapixel camera, the Access has a smaller display and a 1.3 megapixel sensor. Both have Bluetooth and 3G data. But the main point is the TV aspect. Productivity is about to go out the window.
