LG Vu Review, AT&T Mobile TV Pricing Schemes

AT&T rolled out its LG Vu phone today, as well as information on the Mobile TV pricing scheme that will be supported by the new 3-inch widescreen handset (and its yet-to-be-released $199 brother, the Samsung Access). AT&T’s Mobile TV service will be available in 58 markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. We tested the service in New York City. For $13 a month, AT&T will give you access to four core news stations: CBS Mobile, FOX Mobile, NBC 2Go, and NBC News 2 Go. But we’re not all boring accountants looking for the latest market news, are we? Of course not. That’s why we suggest dropping the extra $2 per month (big spender), for access to the more entertaining stations like Comedy Central, ESPN Mobile TV, Nickelodeon, and PIX (Sony’s movie channel). Now you’ll be able to watch South Park or Days of Our Lives from your cubicle. For the first 60 days of launch, a CNCRT station will broadcast recently recorded concerts from big-name artists such as Jay-Z and Rage Against the Machine. (Then again, how recent could those be?) Read on to see our full review and a hands-on video showing some of the Vu’s features in action. For the whole unlimited-package shebang—without minutes of course—you can drop $30 and get unlimited MEdia Net mobile Web browsing and access to CV mobile video (yawn). MEdia Net, if you’re unfamiliar, lets users have access to a host of short streaming video clips and music videos, but even at 99 cents a piece, you don’t get a hard copy. We just finished up our review of the LG Vu, so if you want our opinion on this $299 slice of prime beef and the AT&T Mobile TV experience, check out the full review.

  4. Michael Says:

    I just purchased an LG Vu today, and I do not have the option to minimize my music player. Very lame. I tried updating its firmware, but no dice, it said I had the latest. So, any ideas?

  5. Kenny Says:

    My wife and I both got the LG Vu.. Excellent phone. Fast web, great touch screen response…

    A previous poster said that he couldn’t minimize his music player, we can. I don’t know if they updated firmware or whatever… but we had no problems at all with the phone.
