With the anticipation building over the upcoming football season, would you expect anything less than to watch football on your phone? I know I will be.

NBC Sports' presentation of Notre Dame Football games starts 9/6 on NBC 2Go

Can Charlie Weis and the Irish have a dramatic turn around after a disappointing 2007 season?

SEC football games start 8/30 on CBS Mobile

Is Georgia the best team in the nation? Can LSU continue to succeed even with the loss of Ryan Perrilloux? Will Tim Tebow repeat as the Heisman trophy winner? Time will tell for many of the questions plaguing the SEC this year.

Countdown' till the Preseason Polls

Who will be 2008's #1? Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and USC all make good cases for themselves, but a lot can change before the polls come out.
And tune in to all the great ESPN sports you'd expect on ESPN Mobile TV.

BlackBerry Bold now available -- in Chile?

Movistar's Chilean outpost has now become -- somewhat surprisingly, may we add -- the very first carrier in the world to launch the BlackBerry Bold and put it into subscribers' hands. The carrier's making sure everyone knows what a coup they've managed to pull off, too, proudly proclaiming "FIRST ONES IN THE WORLD" with a red banner draped across the Bold's image on Movistar's site. Pricing seems a little high at 299,990 Chilean pesos (about $588) on a two-year contract, but hey, you've gotta pay to play; just how badly do you want to be one of the first people on the face of the planet (John Mayer notably excepted) to put this thing to use?

Keep an eye out for launch details at

Mobile TV Olympics

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Every one of us stood at attention during grade school and focused on our nation’s flag while we recited our pledge of allegiance to our country. This includes every athlete who is about to represent the United States’ pride in the 2008 Olympic Games. About now you’re probably asking, “What do the Olympic Games and cell phones have to do with each other?” The answer to that pressing question is A LOT!

The MediaFLO Network is proud to be an official sponsor of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. This means that on 8/8/2008 the NBC2GO channel of the AT&T Mobile TV Network will begin its’ 24/7 coverage of the Olympics. This coverage is exclusive to the MediaFLO Network and therefore will not be aired on any other Mobile Video Network. Kudos to all of you proud Mobile TV subscribers :o)

If you are interested in watching this coverage, you will need a Mobile TV ready phone, Mobile Internet and the Mobile TV subscription feature. All of these can be provided for you at your local Car-Tel Communications store. Also, check out to see a brand new commercial featuring an extremely supportive Michael Phelps fan.
