Now you can get live Beeb telly on your smartphone
If you’ve got a smartphone and fancy watching the BBC’s daytime telly offering on the quiet while you work, get yourself over to the beta site of Live TV – Heir Hunters is on now, with Murder She Wrote to follow very soon.
We're told that the new site streams live TV and radio to Wi-Fi-enabled smartphones like the Android G1 and Nokia N Series devices, although the Beta version doesn’t seem to be compatible with the iPhone just yet. The Beeb hopes to extend Live TV out to 3G networks and to add more channels throughout the coming months, but you’ll need an up-to-date TV licence to be able to watch it with a clear conscience.
With any luck, rival broadcasters will stick their oars in and have a go as well, and dull early morning work meetings can be livened up by everyone crowding around a mobile phone to watch slack-jawed reprobates trading insults and blows with each other on the Jeremy Kyle freak show.
