Amp'd inks major content deals

Dec 14 2005 - 02:32 PM ET | MVNO

Amp'd Mobile has announced content deals this week with MTV, CBS and UPN. MTV's addition is especially important considering the company also controls Comedy Central, VH1, CMT, MTV2, mtvU, TV Land, Spike TV, Logo and iFILM. CBS will bring clips from hit shows like CSI and David Letterman. Finally, UPN will provide content from America's Next Top Model and Everybody Hates Chris.

The carrier is expected to start a soft launch of its service tomorrow.

Because all of Amp'd Mobile's handsets support EV-DO, multimedia will be at the carrier's core. Pricing information has not been announced.
