Alltel and Melodeo: Announce Mobile Podcast Service

Alltel Wireless and Melodeo, Inc., announce the first interactive podcast community for PC and mobile phones, today launched Axcess Mobilcast service. The service enables Alltel Wireless customers to easily search and listen to thousands of podcasts on their wireless phones for a monthly subscription of $3.99. Alltel Wireless is the first company in the United States to bring this service to market.

Axcess Mobilcast offers continuously updated podcast episodes and radio shows from popular sources such as NPR and CNN, as well as thousands of independent podcasts from all over the world. The programs are short in duration and cover a wide range of subjects including comedy, music, sports and politics.

Axcess Mobilcast is currently available on several popular Alltel phones. A simple interface allows listeners to browse categories or search programs with no wait time. Podcasts are streamed or downloaded and can be added to the "My Favorites" channel with one click.

This is just the beginning of our efforts to take podcasts to the mobile phone. We have the team and the funding to make this work. Please let me know what you think of this announcement.
