The Open Mobile Video Coalition (OMVC), an alliance of broadcasters dedicated to accelerating the development and rollout of mobile television, has recently integrated functions with the National Association of Broadcasters.
Broadcasters are excited about the possibilities of mobile TV, which is already available in 130 markets reaching half the nation. Mobile TV is your favorite local content when and where you want it on your smartphone or tablet so you don't have to miss the weather report, the big game or your favorite show if you're on the go!
With mobile TV, viewers can tune in to live, local news, traffic information, weather, sporting events and entertainment programs from the convenience of their car, at the beach wherever they may be, using a variety of mobile and video devices. And because the technology uses the broadcast airwaves not the Internet no WiFi is needed and you won't experience buffering.
Mobile TV represents a significant new revenue stream for broadcasters as well as a new way to serve viewers. Broadcasters and manufacturers seeking mobile TV resources and OMVC materials, click here or visit TheFutureofTV.org/MobileTV to see how broadcasters are innovating to better serve viewers.
