IP multicasting via cellular

Is IP multicasting supported on any of cellular networks? I am interested in both transmitting a multicast data packet from a wireless network and receiving a multicast data packet into a wireless network.
There are some technical groups and standards groups working on this prospect, but it is currently not supported. The closest thing is something called cell broadcast, which is supported on GSM networks, but it is not "IP multicasting." It is based on SMS.
