Mobistar launches HD mobile television portal for iPhone

updated 06:00 pm EDT, Fri September 18, 2009

Partnership with Belgian companies VRT, RTBF

Mobistar has launched an iPhone portal in Belgium that allows users to view HD television from the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. The company has expanded its mobile television range through a partnership with two Belgian broadcasting companies, VRT and RTBF. The new portal will permit Mobistar customers to stream RTBF videos or read the VRT and RTBF news directly from the iPhone interface. Mobistar has also extended its live television range by partnering with other public broadcasters in the country.

The service is accessible through the phone's Safari browser and does not require any installation or activation. Users of Mobistar mobile television can now view 24 channels for one hour per day at a cost of 49 cents each day. The service now offers Een, Katnet/Canvas, La Une and La Deux. An electronic program guide will be offered for free, while other smartphones will have access to the portal by the end of the year.
