Samsung will demonstrate a new mobile TV technology that will allow local broadcasters to beam programming to cell phones as well as televisions at CES. Broadcasters would need to send a separate signal for the phones, but would be able to use their current digital spectrum to do so. Currently mobile TV solutions like MediaFLO and Modeo that broadcast TV over a dedicated network also require dedicated spectrum. Samsung has integrated the technology to receive these broadcasts into sample handsets for the demonstration. The technology will need to be approved and adopted by broadcasters before similar handsets will be available for sale.

TV on Phones

European and Asian users spend much more time on their phone...perhaps because the services are better, perhaps because of lifestyle and perhaps because services such as TV are just more accessible. US providers need to recognize the opportunity to reach macro niches such as sports or perople interested in broad social causes or automotive enthusiasts with community and programming that makes sense. Give me what I need and want and I am happy to pay for value!
I agree.

Great idea...

...and one of the very few I've read about this year. Would be great for us Hurricane savaged folks down here in South Florida.
