Under the content-licensing agreement, Emeryville, Calif.-based MobiTV will offer Fox Business Network as a dedicated, live channel of full-length linear programming that will be a simulcast of the feed carried by cable and satellite operators. MobiTV currently offers more than 40 channels through the cellular network, including content from NBC, ESPN and Discovery, with a mix of simulcast and mobile-only channels.

"We are pleased to partner with MobiTV to bring breaking business and financial news to viewers."
