Analyst: Mobile TV at Least 5 Years Away

Despite Korean cease-fire, too many standards will stymie new handheld sets.


New mobile TV services won't take off in this country, or around the world, for years to come, says a new research report.

The gloomy forecast comes despite two Korean companies having stopped battling over standards for the new broadcasts. Too many other standards remain around the world for the industry to get rolling, the report from Strategy Eye says.

"Despite the hype, mobile TV will remain a digital media pipe dream for at least five years," analyst Thomas Warren says.
