Consumers say no to mobile TV, will get it anyway

Just a few months after predicting the adoption of mobile TV as a mainstream service by 2010, a new survey of mobile consumers by Gartner has found little consumer enthusiasm for the medium in Europe.

Earlier in the year Gartner predicted that mobile TV would provide an additional revenue stream for operators, with the market growing from 38m users in 2007 to 356m in 2010.

But a new survey by the same firm has found that only 5% of Europeans are likely to watch mobile TV in the next 12 months.
