Mobile TV is stalled according to Nokia

Mobile broadcast TV was a business failure for Virgin & BT. It used a single, less than glamorous, handset using a technology that Nokia was never going to support.

Now according to Reuters, Nokia suggests that all is not well with their favoured EU supported broadcast standard. Now there is a cynical belief that few users will watch live TV on their handset.

An earlier attempt in the 80’s to create micro mobile TV’s, think Sinclair, also failed.

But could it be a success if there were affordable handsets, snack size shows and a concerted European wide release of bandwidth?
