After more than a year of development, Comcast and Time Warner are each slated to begin offering services via Sprint mobile phones. Later this month, Comcast will start offering services in Boston and Portland, while Time Warner will break into Austin and Raleigh.
The cable by cell service will offer a handful of features that could appeal to many users. In addition to allowing you to watch TV on your phone, the service will sync your home and cell voice mail. Another service expected to launch soon is a wireless PVR function that will give users the ability to watch recorded materials via their cell phones. Cool stuff, wonder how long it’ll take to seep into the rest of the country.
