Watch the Conrad Murray Trial on Your Mobile Device

If you’re home during the day like myself, you’ve probably noticed the local TV coverage of the Dr. Conrad Murray trial, which got underway on Tuesday.

For those of you on the run (or the population that’s obsessed with all things Michael Jackson), you can watch the proceedings thanks to the Michael Jackson Doctor Trial App from Fox Television Stations.

For 99 cents, iPhone, iPad and Android users get access to live coverage of the trial along with recorded local news segments, photo galleries and biographies of all the key people involved in the case.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the app is No. 1 among for-pay news apps.

Oh, America.
