A television WiFi® phone is a mobile phone that combines cell phone technology, WiFi® services and the ability to watch TV. In simpler terms, a TV WiFi® phone is a cell phone that can act as a television. The connection to television service is provided by the user's cell phone service provider through either the provider's network or a proprietary network. This TV service normally requires a monthly payment plan in addition to the cost of regular cellular service.

Television can be viewed on a TV WiFi® phone by using its WiFi® technology to connect to the Internet, then connecting to the TV service. WiFi® is cost effective because users are able to connect to any wireless Internet connection, often without being charged extra, although some providers might charge a monthly fee for using the phone's WiFi® technology. Wireless Internet access points are called hot spots, and many restaurants, hotels and other establishments provide free hot spots for their customers. Other businesses provide WiFi® access for a small fee or roll the cost into the price of their goods or services. There were more than 4 million hot spots worldwide as of 2011.

A TV WiFi® phone also uses high-quality display technology, which allows for a clear picture. These phones are made by most major cell phone manufacturers, and more advanced models become available on a regular basis. A TV WiFi® phone typically costs more than a cell phone that does not have WiFi® or TV capabilities.

Some of the advantages of having a TV WiFi® phone include the being able to use WiFi® technology on the go and being able to watch one's favorite television programs even without being near a TV. Sports fans might find this type of phone especially useful because events can be watched live. The ability to watch recorded movies and other programs could make a TV WiFi® phone even more desirable.
