Cingular video subs to tap TV Guide
Subscribers to Cingular Wireless' video service will soon have access to the mobile on-demand version of the TV Guide Channel.
The deal Cingular cut with TV Guide Mobile Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gemstar-TV Guide, also includes other products and services the two left unspecified.
Earlier in April, TV Guide Mobile Entertainment said its service will eventually take advantage of technology being developed by Gemstar-TV Guide to allow consumers to remotely access their digital video recorders through mobile devices and the Internet.
Terms of the agreement between Cingular and TV Guide Mobile Entertainment were likewise undisclosed. TV Guide Channel is currently available on Cingular's new 3G handsets offering Cingular Video.
