2) Much of world is not necessarily rich enough to afford to pay for service. Couple the long-term viability of regular TV with the clearly superior quality (usually) available from digital and terrestrial TV ain't dead yet.
3) It may be that the long-term unemployed may not be able to afford cable. Sadly, this is not a small nor shrinking group in the US.
It seems odd that Intel would launch a new capability around broadcast TV standards as those standards are moving towards IP-based content distribution. That movement would appear to make a capability like this moot within a relatively short horizon.

All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
