These 52 Stations Now Transmit Mobile DTV

March 9, 2011
MobileDTVvWASHINGTON: According to the signal map of the Open Mobile Video Coalition, 52 TV stations in 27 markets across the country are now transmitting mobile DTV signals. Stations in 33 more markets are said to be planning launches in 2011.

Washington, D.C., has the most stations transmitting mobile digital TV signals, which is logical given the OMVC held a “showcase” of the service in the city for several months last year. The move to transmit over-the-air broadcast signals to mobile devices began in earnest around four years ago, but required the development of a standard as well as the cooperation of chip fabricators and consumer electronics makers. The first full-fledged Mobile DTV receiver started shipping in the United States last October. Penetration numbers have not been published.
