Beaming in the Flo, Yo

By June 14, 2009 No Comments


Qualcomm’s linear mobile Flo TV service will expand from 68 to 84 markets this coming week, following the digital transition; the service is keen on grabbing 100 market by year end, reaching several large markets including Boston and Miami. Flo has purchased big swaths of soon-to-be freed up spectrum in markets like San Francisco, Boston and Houston.  The service, offered through AT&T and Verizon, delivers about 20 national broadcast and cable programming services, costing consumers about $15/month in extra fees.

The next step for FloTV will be to launch new products such as a DVR-like recording feature and social networking component and to work on reducing the cost of tuner chips for phone manufacturers.

You’ll need to buy a phone that can receive FloTV, but when you do, you’ll get broadcast television beamed right to your phone.
