TV Guide Mimics Online Site on Mobile

Using your cell phone to plan what to watch on TV when you get home just got easier. Gemstar-TV Guide has unveiled a new mobile TV Guide Web site designed to echo the online schedule-surfing experience.

The mobile site doesn’t skimp on all that other cool stuff that makes entertaining, either. There’s access to entertainment news, What’s On TV with recommendations, recaps of the previous night’s programs, editors’ blogs, mobile chat rooms and the ability to set up favorite shows and channels.

The ad-supported can be accessed directly from any Web-enabled cell phone or users can text “MOBILE” to MYTVG (69884) to receive a link to the site.
