iPhone Left Out of AT&T-NBCU Olympics Deal

AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) has struck a deal with NBC Universal to distribute 2008 Summer Olympics content on three different platforms, including some content available only to a very select group of AT&T mobile subscribers.
But under the agreement announced Wednesday, AT&T customers that own Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)'s new 3G iPhone won't have access to live content from Beijing on their phones, in part because AT&T and Apple haven't announced plans to offer AT&T Mobile TV content on the ultra-hot device.

To find out which subscribers will have access to the live Olympics content, read the full story on Contentinople.
