NEW YORK -- Sprint Corp. is adding a television service for cell phones with real-time programs, albeit somewhat choppy, from cable networks including CNBC and ABC News.

The new MobiTV service, available starting Thursday, will cost $9.99 per month in addition to the monthly fee of $15 that Sprint subscribers pay to use the Internet data connection on their mobile phones. Other networks featured on the service include MSNBC, Discovery Channel and The Learning Channel.

Although the audio for MobiTV programs will play in a continuous stream, the cell phone screen will not display the equivalent of full-motion video like that seen on a real television. Instead, the video will play at a rate of one or two frames per second, as compared with more than 20 frames per second for real TV.

This is a start of many improvements and other availibilities by other companies in the future. I never heard anything more on the XM Radio video that was planned to be offered.
