Choice is good, right? According to one reader, DVB-H is not the only choice for mobile TV (TV on a handset). In fact, he claims it's an expensive choice, as it requires "the installation of thousands of new masts in each country (at vast economic and environmental cost) and is several years away."
He goes on to say, "In addition, DVB-H will only be able to provide broadcast TV to mobile phones and, as already seen in Japan, the public are un-willing to pay for broadcast TV services. In Japan, broadcast TV is now available for free on mobiles."
He claims that users are, however, willing to pay for on-demand content. One mass-market mobile TV service that's available today is ROK TV (www.rok.tv).
The company that calls itself ROK TV has launched a mass-market 2.5G, multi-channel, on-demand, TV-for-mobile service in the UK that plays full-screen TV at 14 frames/s over GPRS and is compatible with 20 smartphone handsets already.
