      Verizon to Offer Service for Cell Phones

NEW YORK (AP) -- Verizon Wireless has signed on as the first cellular 
carrier that will offer a broadcast TV network for mobile phones that 
Qualcomm Inc. plans to launch in late 2006.

The companies declined to say Thursday what programming might be 
featured over the MediaFLO system, which will be broadcast to mobile 
phones over a different portion of the wireless spectrum than 
cellular calls and data services.

Cellular operators in a handful of other countries already feature TV 
from a separate wireless network, using technologies from Qualcomm 
rivals such as Nokia Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. Mobile 
users in South Korea, one of the most advanced markets, can now watch 
broadcasts via both satellites and terrestrial towers like those that 
will be used by Qualcomm.
