They’ve not made a lot of fuss about it but Auntie Beeb is quietly testing live TV for mobile phones. It requires a wireless connection but 3G is apparently on its way. And it’s surprisingly good too. Runs pretty smoothly on my Windows Mobile phone. In fact better than the live radio that’s also being tested.
