updated Verizon today announced they will use Qualcomm's MediaFLO technology to bring TV to their EV-DO networks. FLO (forward link only) is a streaming protocol that allows a carrier to broadcast to many subscribers simultaneously by letting the subscriber grab a stream that is already in progress and any user can instantly start viewing. Verizon will launch the service using a 700 MHz network owned by Qualcomm, the final specs and standards of which were only recently ratified. They will begin by launching FLO broadcasts in about half of their EV-DO markets and then slowly expand the network to cover all EV-DO areas. The initial launches should begin sometime next year.
