Virgin Mobile adds ITN News to its mobile TV service

Mobile phones

Virgin Mobile’s recently-launched mobile TV service has got a new channel – ITN News, a 24 hour news service covering current affairs, news and entertainment, designed specifically for mobile handsets.

ITN News adds to the channels already available on Virgin Mobile’s Lobster 700TV, including BBC One, ITV1, Channel 4 and E4 and now ITN News, along with over 50 DAB digital radio stations. The handset is available from Virgin stores, Carphone Warehouse, WH Smiths or online from the Virgin Mobile site. The TV phone and service is free to customers on a contract of £25 a month or more, for the life of their contract.

Alternatively, it’s available on pre-pay for £199, with the TV service free for an initial three-month period, followed by a charge of £5 a month. As it’s through DAB, make sure you have a reception in your area before you buy.
