AP: DTV Transition Could Kill Free Cell Phone TV
An Associated Press article, Analog TV shutdown kills free cell-phone TV, caught my attention earlier this week. I wasn’t aware there were cell phones that could receive analog TV!

The article talks about a Chinese handset that includes an analog TV receiver. Obviously, this unit can’t be sold in the U.S., but the article uses it to highlight consumer interest in mobile/handheld reception and describe the problems associated with receiving DTV. It also has an interesting discussion on the “very large market” for free, advertiser supported TV programming on cell phones.
