The BBC today announced the beginning of a test syndication of a range of its TV channels and radio networks via 3G to certain mobile phones.
Although no specific programmes were named, the BBC chose to useDoctor Who to illustrate the announcement via its press office.
Lasting up to 12 months, the test will allow subscribers to Orange, Vodafone and 3's TV packages to watch BBC One, BBC News 24 and BBC Three (with the exception of some sport and acquired programmes) streamed on their mobiles.
Subscribers will also be able to listen to up to eight radio stations, including Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4, 6 Music, BBC 7 and Asian Network.
It will start within the month, said the corporation.
