Mobile/handheld TV could bring $2 bln by 2012

Broadcast television could reap an additional $2 bln in annual revenue by 2012 delivering content to mobile and handheld devices if an industry standard is adopted and technology deployed quickly, according to Flexible Advanced Services for Television & Radio On All Devices. Assuming early adoption of a M/H standard, the report concludes the estimated $2 bln in additional revenue by broadcasters would be shared between local stations (approximately $1.1 bln), TV networks and syndicators (approximately $900 mln).
