Half Billion Mobile TV Viewers Expected in Four Years
Adoption of mobile TV will accelerate to the point that half a billion people worldwide will be using it by 2013. That's according to numbers released Tuesday by ABI Research, which predicted that mobile TV will move far beyond cellular networks.
“Mobile TV users have yet to value the medium properly because it has not been validated as an independent product and service,” the company's analyst, Jeff Orr, said as part of the release. “It has been primarily offered at the end of a long list of more preferred cellular services. However, Mobile TV will soon be positioned in a more proper role as an extension of traditional broadcast TV services.”
