Vodafone is to launch a Sky starter pack by the end of the year that will allow customers to access TV via their mobile.
Customers can sign up through the Mobile TV Category on Vodafone Live! at a cost of £3 per month with the first month free or £1 per day. The starter pack contains the following channels, some of which are already available in the Variety Pack: BBC1, BBC3, BBC News 24, BBC Radio, Five, Boomerang, National Geographic, Crime biographies, Animal planet and Discovery Turbo.
Vodafone, like other networks that offer Sky mobile TV, previously offered either a basic sports pack or a more limited entertainment package.
Sky recently signed a deal with T-Mobile, adding the network to Vodafone and Orange which offer Sky mobile TV content.
A spokesman for Vodafone said: ‘We are looking to expand customers' accessibility even further by issuing a wide choice of channels to watch with their mobile phone.’
