The worldwide mobile TV broadcast market is expanding, as the number of commercially launched mobile TV broadcast networks will grow from 9 in 2006 to 13 in 2007, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). The unavailability of spectrum is the largest barrier to the launch of more mobile TV services, particularly in Europe, the high-tech market research firm says.
“Over the next 10 years, as more spectrum is made available, in many cases when analog TV signals are shut off, more mobile TV broadcast services will launch,” says Michelle Abraham, In-Stat analyst. “Another issue limiting the market today is the small number of mobile TV broadcast enabled handsets available in many markets.”
Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
- Mobile TV broadcast subscribers will reach 125 million worldwide in 2011.
- Asia continued to have the greatest number of mobile TV broadcast subscribers through 2006.
- Mobile TV broadcast standards are proliferating, with the most recent being those suggested for the ATSC standard.
