The author comments on the emergence of a service that delivers video programming to handheld devices in the U.S. The companies that deliver such product include Qualcomm Inc., Modeo LLC and Hiwire. The author was skeptical that a real market would develop for such kind of service and claimed that three competitors makes prospects even worse. He asserted that MediaFLO deployment will cause interference to channel 55 television reception.
