Bell is stepping up its Mobile TV game this year big time. We knew they had legs with the NFL and NHL — heck, they received complaints about it — but if you are into watching sports on your mobile device this is going to be a banner year.

The company is announcing today they are bringing “top-rated sporting events available live on Bell Mobile TV,” including:

January 28                  2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition
January 29                  2012 Tim Hortons NHL All Star Game
January 29                  Pro Bowl
February 5                  Super Bowl XLVI
February 18-26           Scotties Tournament of Hearts
March 3-11                 Tim Horton’s Brier Cup
March 10                    Vancouver Whitecaps season begins
March 15                    NCAA Basketball March Madness begins
April – May                 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs
May- June                   2012 Stanley Cup Final

You can buy Mobile TV subscriptions for $5 per month for 5 hours, and $1 per hour after that. Other content includes CTV, BNN and CBC News. Last count was that there were 300,000 Mobile TV subscribers, and that should only grow now that Bell has licensed more killer sports content.

Compatible devices range from the LG Optimus LTE to the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Nexus. Tablets include the Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE. Samsung devices support the AllShare DLNA feature which will stream your Mobile TV media to your TV or any connected device, while LG has its own DLNA app included.

You can download Mobile TV from the Android Marketplace if it isn’t bundled already on the device, while it is also available on the iPhone and BlackBerry.

    The problem I have is that they keep making mobile TV more expensive. It used to count against your data cap, but I’m on unlimited data so I didn’t care about that, then they dropped it to $5/month for 10 hours, and now it’s $5/month for 5 hours. I cancelled it because of that. What used to be a value-added service is now just more expensive than it is worth.

    Bell : “hmmm since were in canada screw basketball finals and lets just air only hockey”

    I rather watch it on Justintv or some other website then pay for it & watch it on my phone. Not going to lie but how long do you think the battery will last on the phone while you are streaming this live on your phone?…

    Bell has exclusive NHL rights and the NBA had a lockout for almost half the season. Yeah I’m sure it makes perfect business sense to secure a license only guaranteed to bring in 50% of revenue on a service that isnt too popular in the marketplace to begin with.

    The funny thing is, this doesnt use Data, and when i went over my 10 hours, they never charged me. I dont know if they’ve changed it since the summer, though. Do they have an overage charge scheme by now?

    Bell is a rip off they will take advantage of there customers whenever they can
