Coming this May to AT&T will be a new mobile TV service which they are calling “AT&T Mobile TV”.
Initially just two handsets will support the new service, the LG Vu and the Samsung Access.
Included in the offering is are two channels that will only be available on the service, one of which will be called “PIX”.
PIX will be a Sony channel for delivering feature films to handsets.
Eric Berger, VP of Mobile Entertainment at Sony Pictures Television, says “we recognize that people are on the go with their mobile phone and coming and going. This isn’t for people to view a movie for the first time. It’s OK to miss the beginning.”
Once movies are added to PIX they will be available for a month and new additions are expected to be added weekly.
No information yet has been released about the other exclusive AT&T channel.
