How does the television and Internet access on my mobile phone work?

Your mobile phone communicates with the Internet the same way your PC does. The only difference is that a mobile phone uses a wireless rather than a line-based connection. That’s why you can use the Internet to access the same Web-based applications on your mobile phone as you do your PCs: search engines, email, dictionaries, etc.  In recent years, the advent of broadband in our homes has made it possible to watch TV and movies on our PCs.  Now new faster 3G wireless networks are bringing broadband speeds to mobile phones, so we can watch TV and movie viewing on your phone. Some mobile TV services like MediaFLO also use a specific network to broadcast the TV signal, that’s why they are only available with certain cellphones.
