I don't know what the deal is with Americans and why MobileTv & mobile payments haven't cought on in the U.S., I really don't. Aren't we a mobile society? I'd like to watch more video content on my smartphone, this capability should be available on all carriers, and all smartphone!

well I think it is directly related to the general way TV Broadcasters/providers control in the US!
more than the mobile screens, how the hell would you pay at least $100 to get TV ? and it's not even with a guarantee that there will be no or less ads, it's the area of the world where there are the greatest amount of TV commercials per hours.
