Vodafone Ireland has released its pricing list for 3G broadband mobile phone customers:
Unlimited access to Barclays Premiership goals, match previews and post-match interviews for ?9.99 per month. On a promotional basis, that service will be free to customers until February 2005.
Full-length movies for ?4.99 and movie clips for ?2. There will also be a Movie of the Month service (this month’s movie is Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason) for ?4.99, a service which is free until February 2005. Individual clips can also be downloaded through this service for between ?0.50c and ?2, depending on the content.
Vodaphone Ireland and Viacom will offer a MTV Music video subscription service that cost ?7.99 per month and will offer access to MTV Live Lounge and Making the Video.
Online games will be playable for up to ?7 per month.
Video calling will allow customers to see each other while on a video call, and Vodafone Ireland will be charging video calls at the same price as voice calls on a promotional basis. Prices for interpersonal MMS or interpersonal pre-recorded video messages will be ?0.19c to ?0.69c according to message size.
Vodafone Ireland has signed 3G roaming agreements with networks in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
So far that I’ve seen, no major publishers or broadcasters from Ireland or other countries will offering news through these 3G services.
