Telstra to stream ABC, SBS to Next G mobiles

Telstra today made the ABC1 and SBS ONE TV channels available for viewing by mobile customers who have signed up for its Mobile Foxtel packs -- which start from $12 per month or $4 per day on its Next G mobile phone network.

The extra services will be available at no additional cost, and the data downloaded as part of the stream is included in the price of the packs and not counted towards a customers' monthly download quota on their phone.

"This means Next G network customers can tune into ABC favourites such as Spicks & Specks, Doctor Who and Sesame Street or popular SBS shows such as World News Australia and The World Game while they’re out of the house,” said Telstra in a statement, noting that the total number of channels available on Mobile Foxtel was now 33.

Telstra has made dedicated apps for the Mobile Foxtel service available for the iPhone and Android smartphone platforms.
