Mobile TV fails to deliver

Most attempts to deliver television services via mobile handsets have been unsuccessful, and this trend will continue in most markets, according to new research from Ovum.
 
 “There are a range of issues standing in the way…including infrastructure issues, a lack of investment, and the simple absence of evidence to prove the consumer use case,” analyst Ovum Tim Renowden said.
 
Unless TV networks are prepared to make upfront investments in content and infrastructure for mobile TV, consumer demand for handsets will remain weak.
