A recent SCRI survey with Broadcast Engineering Magazine showed that over three in ten TV (30.6%) and almost four in ten cable stations (37.5%) are already transmitting mobile-TV broadcasts. Over the next two years almost half of TV & cable stations (45%) expect to be transmitting mobile-TV broadcasts. With around 30% of each reporting that they are unsure at this time, the actual adoption rate is likely to be even higher as these stations get in line with others transmitting mobile-TV broadcasts.
