Fragmentation of Mobile TV Broadcasting Here to Stay


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 2008 - There is a fragmentation of standards for digital mobile TV broadcasting—just as we have NTSC, PAL, and SECAM for analog TV—that appears to be the way of the future, reports In-Stat ( In digital mobile TV broadcasting, several standards are being used, several mainly in one country, and that situation is likely to continue in the future, the high-tech market research firm says.

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

* The most popular mobile TV broadcast services are those that are offered without a subscription, as in Japan and South Korea. However, mobile TV broadcast services are viewed by many as a way to generate revenue, so many of the mobile TV broadcast services will be subscription-based.
* DVB-H is the most widely used digital mobile TV broadcast standard, in terms of number of operators having launched services.
* Analog mobile TV broadcast viewers will outpace digital mobile TV broadcast viewers and subscribers in 2009.
* Worldwide mobile TV broadcast subscription revenue will reach US$12 billion in 2012.
