Qualcomm Makes FLO TV Demise Official
Qualcomm Tuesday confirmed reports that it will stop consumer sales of the FLO TV devices. The move had been reported first on Monday by PaidContent.org.
"We are suspending our direct to consumer sales of new devices," Qualcomm said in a statement. "We anticipate we will maintain the network so that current direct to consumer subscribers will continue to receive FLO programming into Spring 2011. Service provided to handsets purchased through wireless operators is unaffected at this time."
The company said that it is speaking with potential partners about selling off the spectrum.
