T-Mobile launches Pocket Comedy TV on its mobile TV trial service
T-Mobile has announced that it’s launching Pocket Comedy TV on its trial mobile TV service. The specially designed-for-mobile TV channel from Mobix will feature a range of stand-up and TV comedy, as well as cartoons and viral comedy clips, with comedians including Ricky Gervais, Lee Evans and Jack Dee, and programmes including Father Ted and League of Gentlemen.
Though details are a little sketchy (uh ha ha), the promise is that the channel has been designed specifically with mobile users on small screens in mind – presumably rather than simply being ported from other formats – and the content is updated regularly.
CEO of Mobix, Damian Mulcock, said that he believed that mobile TV would become a key personal entertainment medium, and will let people see the real benefits of 3G.
Now, and I’m sorry for mentioning it again, how sweet would a T-Mobile, Mobix, and iPhone 3G deal be?
