Bell has announced Mobile TV, a new Apple iPhone app which gives Bell Mobility customers access to live TV programming.

Available from the iTunes Canada app store, the program lets subscribers watch programming on CBC, CTV, Muchmusic, TSN, SportsNet, the Weather Network and more.

The application is free of charge for iPhone users (iPhone OS 3.0 or later), however, readers should note that the Bell Mobile TV will only work with the Bell 3G network. This means that the Mobile TV iPhone app can only be used by Bell Mobility customers on an iPhone (iPod Touch users are shut out) and it will not work over Wifi.

If you plan on using the app on a regular basis, then be sure to have a sizable data plan or be prepared to rack up some hefty data usage charges.

Version 1.1.14 of the Bell Mobile TV app is now available free of charge from the iTunes Canada app store.
