The GoTV mobile television network is the only television studio built specifically for mobile TV and is available on Cingular Wireless, Sprint Nextel, and Boost Mobile in the United States.

Those running Android on their handsets can now access numerous entertainment channels from GoTV, including “Hip Hop Official” through to “True Country”. The channels provide music news, updates, charts and even exclusive performances and red carpet interviews. To gain access to these channels, users must first download a free application to their Android phone from the Google Android Market.
