Mobile TV new victim

Qualcomm is likely to pull the plug on its MediaFlo service in the US by the end of the year. MediaFlo will join DVB-H and other mobile TV standards that have failed in the recent years.

It is really weird that mobile TV seems to be such a failure. On one hand mobile networks are saturated with data and on the other hand no mobile TV standard emerges to off load this very data.

People are consuming an increasingly amount of video and TV contents on the go, hence a mobile TV standard would please operators and help them to keep up with the data demand.

Wouldn’t it be the role of the GSMA to help such a standard to stand up?
