Mobile TV is a growing service that provides what some vendors call "real TV" on your Smartphone, Blackberry PDAs, Palm Treo or other devices with mobile data plans. Mobile TV lets users view broadcast television programs, cable shows from Comedy Central or similar networks and other TV entertainment on their mobile devices for a monthly fee. While this service is growing, it is not available in all areas. Major cities such as Chicago, Indianapolis, and Portland may have access long before nearby towns are "mobile TV-capable." When your mobile data plan does expand to include a mobile TV option for your Blackberry PDA, check your make and model number to make sure your device is compatible with the mobile TV service. Mobile data plans should include a list of compatible devices.
