The article focuses on the TDtv alternative which allows mobile operators in the U.S. to maintain control and increase revenues. TDtv allows operators to use existing spectrum to support the mobile television market and have universal spectrum across all of their properties. TDtv provides similar spectral efficiency and number of channels as digital video broadband-handheld and MediaFLO. TDtv gives mobile operators full control and the majority of revenue while enhancing spectrum assets.
