A very welcome SMS arrived today on my iPhone 4, alerting me to the fact there’s a new iPhone application from Optus available. It’s called Mobile TV and provides Optus iPhone customers with free access to ABC and SBS 24/7. As an added extra, there’s also the Today show from channel 9. Even better news is that streaming this content doesn’t count towards your monthly cap.
One downside is that you can’t connect via Wi-Fi, obviously so the app can detect your connected through the Optus network.
If your wondering why Optus would give this away for free, its really an entry into their premium mobile channel offerings. What I’d actually be interested in paying for is having IP-delivered video from all the free-to-air networks.
Available via iTunes
