You'll read below that MobiTV is currently J2ME only. With more and more carriers announcing BREW in the US, MobiTV will ultimately be forced to create a BREW client especially if they want to leverage Verizon's 40mil+ subscriber base. But when? And will they make it something better than a slideshow with audio?
MobiTV is having success signing on TV networks, however it is not having the same luck with wireless operators. Since its launch last year, it has not signed on any carriers other than Sprint, its original launch partner. Since MobiTV is a J2ME application, it does not require any special technology that is holding back other North American carriers (except those that use BREW) from launching the service. It is possible that MobiTV requires a faster data rate like that of CDMA 2000 1xRTT, however Cingular and ATT have EDGE which should be acceptable considering most of MobiTV's stream is low bandwidth audio -- video is sent as stills at only about one frame pre second.
