SPOTLIGHT: South Koreans like the quality of mobile TV

Interesting news coming out of South Korea, where the government has been subsidizing Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) services to allow users to watch mobile TV for free. Consumer reviews are positive so far about quality, but it's not clear if they want to watch the upcoming World Cup soccer games on it. The Electronic Technology Research Institute, a government-financed organization, expects that 2 million Koreans will use mobile TV this year, with the number growing to nearly 15 million, or about 30 percent of the population, by 2010. But whether that is free or paid subscribers is unclear. There is no indication of how long services will be subsidized by the government, which plans to expand it from the Seoul area to other regions and subways. Article
