AT&T turns on mobile TV this week

And after all the talk, it looks like AT&T has stuck to its deadline and it’s going to be launching its broadcast mobile TV service – under the unsurprising brand name AT&T TV – from May 4, with two compatible devices, the LG Vu and the Samsung Access.

The service, based on Qualcomm’s MediaFLO, will go live in 58 cities, with the usual mix of broadcasters from the likes of CNN, Comedy Central, MTV and Fox, with the usual mix of movies, news, comedy, and music content being promised.

At least now we get a chance to see the pricing: and it’s $15 a month, which seems rather ambitious on AT&T’s part. How long before it switches to an advertising (free content in return for ads) or bundled (all the data you can eat and mobile TV thrown in for good measure) model?
