Mobile TV to get more than 500 million subscribers by 2010

Posted on Friday, Jun 23 2006 @ 12:18 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
ABI Research claims mobile TV services will have about 514 million subscribers worldwide in 2011, up from 6.4 million at the end of 2005.
The fledgling market for mobile TV is beginning to build significant momentum, and advertising-supported broadcast services are expected to propel additional growth over the next few years, the research firm indicated.

"Broadcast will be the preferred method of access to mobile video for most people," said principal analyst Ken Hyers at ABI. "Unicast will remain part of the mix, for customers who want to access video-on-demand, but ABI Research believes that the majority of subscription services will be for broadcast content, and that unicast-only subscriptions will not be a significant part of the market."
