Russell Beattie: Mobile TV is a Reality

Russell has something to say about mobile TV:

"What I want to say is this: Mobile TV is a reality. Whether it’ll be a rampaging success or not, no one can say for certain, but the technology is real, the rollouts are happening right now, and it’s not going away any time soon.

In terms of a business, maybe consumers will accept commercials on their phones - which will allow cheaper subsidized programming - or maybe they’ll hate them - which will lead to more HBO-like channels instead. Maybe people will love Video Podcasts, maybe they’ll think they suck. Maybe people will like per-show purchases like iTunes, maybe they’ll demand all-you-can-eat subscriptions. Starting to get my point? No one really knows."
