Free Digital TV on Cell Phone in Japan

Japan’s mobile TV service is not the world’s first, South Korea, Britain and several other nations offer a similar service, although with different technologies.

But the new service in Japan, which is free, will potentially reach the broadest market yet through the country’s terrestrial digital broadcast system, which relays images through the air via TV towers, not satellites. It also uses broadcasting air waves, rather than an Internet connection, to relay streaming video.

Mobile TV services such as VCast and MobiTV are generally offered at $15 per month on top of an already expensive celluar data plan. The adoption rate is understandably much lower.
