Live Streaming A Solid Backup To Mobile DTV

Development of mobile DTV is moving slowly, and while I’m not ready to write it off, it’s comforting to know that work on a Plan B is well underway. The Big Four networks and their affiliates are actively discussing live streaming of broadcast signals. Another incentive to begin streaming is Aereo and other startups that think they can stream broadcast signals without the permission of broadcasters and that’s created a sense of urgency among station owners. It’s nice to know that if mobile DTV fails to launch, live streaming is there to keep broadcasting in the mobile game.
