    Available on the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 from Sprint, Verizon and Alltel ...

    From the living room to any room MobiTV and Disney-ABC Television Group have reached an agreement to distribute ABC Mobile, a channel featuring full-length episodes of many of ABC's most popular series, including "Desperate Housewives," "Grey's Anatomy," "Samantha Who?" and "Ugly Betty." ABC Mobile also features additional content from ABC Daytime, ABC Family and ABC News.

    "Adding ABC content to the MobiTV lineup reflects our dedication to bringing high quality, popular entertainment to the mobile consumer, and to offering content providers the ability to reach the broadest audiences," said Charlie Nooney, Chairman and CEO, MobiTV. "ABC has some of the most watched primetime shows in America, and we're excited to partner with them to deliver this exceptional entertainment."

    Full episodes featured on ABC Mobile are available to MobiTV subscribers on AT&T Wireless and Sprint the day after their broadcast airing. The new primetime shows add to MobiTV's daily lineup of live TV, made-for-mobile and video on demand (VOD) with more than 40 channels of content from partners including NBC, ESPN and Discovery Networks.

    "Partnering with MobiTV to offer primetime shows on mobile phones expands ABC Mobile's distribution in the marketplace," said Matt Murphy, senior vice president, digital video distribution, Disney and ESPN Media Networks. "We are thrilled to be able to provide fans of ABC with additional opportunities to catch up on their favorite shows."

    MobiTV has more than 4 million subscribers on 350+ mobile devices, and powers the mobile TV-viewing experience for major carriers like Sprint, AT&T Wireless and Alltel, among others.

    The availability of ABC primetime follows the announcement of Mobi4Biz, a vertical financial application from MobiTV aimed directly at the business consumer. Debuting in October on the RIM Blackberry Bold device, Mobi4Biz combines live TV and VOD content from CNBC, Bloomberg Television, FOX Business and TheStreet.com with up-to-the minute stock market data from CNBC.
