Mywaves Cellphone Vodcasts

Young startup Mywaves today announced the finished version of its self-titled video subscription service for cellphones. A combination of RSS news feed technology and agreements with major content providers lets owners of 3G wireless handsets subscribe to regular video streams. As many as 10,000 separate channels are available, the company boasts, giving access to content such as CNN news clips or highly-rated YouTube videos. A Mywaves user can filter by category and tag channels with ratings; though the software is primarily managed on a PC, word of new videos can also be sent by SMS text messages.

Mywaves says the service will remain free for anyone with a compatible cellphone, but requires a 3G wireless data plan with most major cellular carriers in Europe or the US.
