America Finally Has a Mobile DTV StandardS

After plenty of half-hearted attempts at mobile video from wireless carriers and Qualcomm, the ATSC has defined a standard that should, at long last, bring live streaming video to our phones. About time we got a DMB equivalent.

Keep in mind we're not talking about VCast, Sprint TV or whatever other service your carrier offers. This is the real deal. Live streaming TV straight from the networks to mobile devices. That could mean live sports, live sitcoms, live whatever-you-can-think-of TV on your phone.

Hopefully the mobile DVR apps will follow. [Press Release via Crunchgear]
