Germans want their mobile TV
According to research by Medienkommission carried out for ARD/ZDF in November 2006, 13% of the German population are interested in mobile TV but they don’t particularly want to watch it on mobile phones. Younger participants in the survey said they would like to watch mobile TV on their MPS player or iPod; others would like to watch on handheld receivers and laptops.
The research shows people are interested in watching mobile TV when they are on long trips and while they are waiting for the doctor or at the barbers. The service should also be free: 87% of all respondents said they want the ARD and ZDF channels to be available at no charge.
