US finally gets a mobile digital TV standard
The United States finally took a leap forward today in the world of mobile TV as the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) finally announced a new mobile DTV standard. The new standard, comparable in some ways to DVB in Europe et al. enables typical TV like that you usually watch in the living room, to find a new home on mobile devices. Good for live television, video-on-demand, targeted advertising and all the other fun stuff that comes with typical cable, the ATSC standard is already supported on select Samsung and LG devices, and will hopefully roll out sometime in the near future. Over 800 American stations are already signed up to broadcast the new signal over existing 6 MHz airwaves. You can read more about the new standard here.
