Pilot participants not only wanted to watch familiar program offerings, but they welcome mobile TV content suitable for short and occasional viewing.

In general, participants spent about 20 minutes a day watching mobile TV. More active users watched between 30 to 40 minutes per session.

Watching TV on mobile phones was most popular while traveling on public transport - to relax or to keep up to date with the latest news. It also proved popular at home for entertainment and complementing the primary home TV.
