Free mobile TV could be coming soon near you. How cool would that be. I could so see me on a car trip with the family (those 14 hour drives to NC) and be able to watch TV on my cell phone. It only makes sence this would come about with TV stations trying to drum up more business. Now they can sell more advertising to mobiles. I'm betting the advertising will be different on the home TV vs the mobile TV. Also what about those (like me) who pay for their cable at home? If its Free and mobile can we get a adapter to hook up to the home TV's and say good bye to that cable bill? I would love to say to Comcast - hey stick it Smile

Washington, D.C. will be 1st to get free mobile TV

Washington will be the first U.S. city to get free digital TV broadcasts for mobile devices like cell phones, laptop computers and in-car entertainment systems, broadcasters were set to announce Monday.

Broadcasts using new "mobile DTV" technology are expected to begin in late summer from five stations: local affiliates of CBS, NBC, PBS and Ion and one independent station owned by Fox.

The initial broadcasts will be identical to those beamed to TV sets, including the advertising.

It's unclear what devices might be available with the special receivers needed for the new signals. Cell phones are main candidates for the technology, but the wireless carriers have shown no enthusiasm, and the largest two have their own TV services, which require subscriptions.
