ABC and Disney are making their video available through Qualcomm’s FLO TV mobile video service, in a deal that will add popular shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and Lost to the service. In addition, FLO TV will add select content from ABC Family, SOAPnet, and short-form content from ABC Entertainment and ABC News, as well as a live simulcast of the Disney Channel.
This isn’t the Walt Disney Co.’s first foray onto FLO TV; the company also makes its ESPN Mobile TV available through the service. That partnership was extended to include even more live event coverage, with previously unavailable games from ESPN being made available on the ABC Mobile Channel.
With the latest deal, FLO TV now has mobile video from 17 different content providers, including all four major broadcast networks. The full channel lineup also includes NBC Mobile, NFL Network, A&E Mobile, Discovery Mobile, and Fox Business, among others.
Consumers can subscribe to watch mobile video on FLO TV through a number of ways, including its personal television device, on AT&T’s Mobile TV or Verizon’s V CAST, or through its in-car Auto Entertainment system.
