The Mobile500 Alliance to launch new mobile TV service this summer

The annual NAB Show always dazzles attendees with the latest broadcast innovations and gadgets, and this year was no exception.  The growing adoption of mobile television took center stage at this year’s show, with many vendors demonstrating new consumer devices that will hit stores this summer.

We caught up with John Lawson from the Mobile500 Alliance and asked about his company’s new mobile TV offerings.  The Mobile500 Alliance service includes 437 individual stations and reaches 94% of the U.S. population.  This summer, it will also be available via an iPhone/iPad app with the purchase of a small adapter, and will include over-the-air mobile TV broadcasts with no monthly fees or hefty mobile data charges.  It even includes DVR functionality to record and pause live TV!
