Tailgate Approved!

Posted by: Mark Bilek

So you're on the way to the big game and plan on doing some serious tailgating. Until now, your choices for getting amped up included listening to the pre-game show on the radio or pulling out a TV and generator and adding a big honking antenna on the top of the van. No longer, Chrysler Corporation has just launched Mobile TV.

Available on Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles as a $629 MOPAR dealer-installed option, Mobile TV utilizes the in-vehicle entertainment system to stream up to 20 different channels, including live sports, breaking news, kids programs and primetime TV.

The channel lineup includes CBS Mobile, CNBC, Comedy Central, FOX News, MSNBC, MTV, NBC 2Go, and Nickelodeon. Mobile TV is being offered on 2008-2010 model year vehicles with factory DVD entertainment systems, including the Chrysler Town & Country, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Commander, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey, Dodge Nitro, Ram 1500 and Ram 2500/3500. The service also can be added to select 2008-2010 model-year vehicles when new Mopar headrest or seat-top DVD entertainment systems are purchased.

A small antenna, similar in size to a laptop mouse, is mounted on a vehicle's roof to deliver the digital TV signal. Inside the vehicle, the receiver and wiring are installed under the interior trim of the vehicle and are not visible to occupants. The $695 purchase price includes a one-year subscription and a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty for new vehicles and 12-month/12,000-mile warranty on used vehicles.

You'll be able to see Mobile TV for yourself at the Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep display at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. I wonder if Chrysler will demo Mobile TV in the line for the Jeep Driving Experience?
