Crunch time for MediaFLO

I think this is really crunch time for MediaFLO. They haven't exactly taken off in my opinion, and the analog switch off should be the last real blockage to potential success. I still think the average US customer won't pay for mobile TV though, but a bigger coverage foot print might help: More subs might mean lower prices, (it's broadcast after all so adding subs doesn't affect capacity). Of course, if US broadcast TV were worth watching, that would help too...

Do they actually think the government cares???

Seriously, does Qualcomm really think they're going to push back the date just because Qualcomm has a huge interest in something that was set in stone.

What about all the people that have known about this for YEARS and all the money taxpayers have spent to pay for cards for the converter boxes. These people know, but there's no way we can hold them responsible. That would just be silly, at least under our nanny government.
They don't want to push back the date. They want the original date to keep. They support the original date of Feb. 17th

Not Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless did not comment on this issue. Ivan Seidenberg, CEO of Verizon Communications did. Probably based on the impact to FiOS.
Yea, that is correct!
Good point.
