Babelgum – have a chew on the free mobile TV service from Vodafone

Babelgum.jpgVodafone has launched an on-phone TV service for its customers on a monthly contract. Babelgum – good name but not sure it’s applicable – is an app available for download now on the iPhone and the Nokias 6210, N95 and N96.

That doesn’t exactly make it widely accessible for the moment but then I’m not sure that other handset users are missing out just now either. The service is free and brings short clips from all the usual categories straight to your phone – film, TV, lifestyle, music, nature, sport, comedy, travel, history and science.

At the moment, they’re pushing elements of EMI and Sony BMG’s content but personally I think things like little original short films and documentaries are of more interest.

So, long as you have unlimited data, you may as well download it but otherwise I wouldn’t fear the morning you get to work and everyone’s talking about that show on Babelgum.
